New Delhi: American cruiser bike maker Harley-Davidson on Wednesday unveiled its new Street Rod model in India priced at Rs 5.86 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

“The model is built to appeal a specific demographic in this space (of a growing population of young adults). As a customer-led organisation, a key part of our strategy is to attract and retain new riders in India,” Harley-Davidson India Director Marketing Pallavi Singh said in a statement.

The new Street Rod powered by a 750 cc engine produces 11 per cent more horsepower and 5 per cent more torque than the Street 750, the company said.

Bookings for the model opens on Wednesday and test rides will commence on 21 April, 2017.

The Street Rod comes strapped with a 750 cc V-twin engine. The model is available in three colours vivid black, charcoal denim and olive gold.

Chetan Shedjale, Senior Motorcycle Designer, Harley-Davidson added, “American racing is something very inspirational to the world, it was a key factor in styling inspiration and resulted in substantial changes to the look of the Harley-Davidson Street Rod. It is designed to deliver the style and agility demanded in an urban environment where our riders will experience this motorcycle in.”
