Harley-Davidson made an entry into the growing urban middle-weight motorcycle segment with the Street 750 and caught the fancy of a number of aspiring buyers with their bang on pricing. The Street 750 was launched earlier this month at the 2014 Auto Expo, priced at Rs. 4.10 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi) and has now announced that the company will be providing financing options on the motorcycle in association with HDFC and ICICI banks. The loan will not only be offered on the bike, but also on accessories which the company says is an important part of the Harley-Davidson lifestyle and culture.
The bookings for the Street 750 will commence on the 1st of March, 2014 and all those who complete their booking of the motorcycle in the month of March itself will have their processing fees waved off on their entire loan amount on the loans originated from HDFC and ICICI banks. The customers can purchase the Street 750 with a minimum down payment of Rs. 97,471/- with an EMI of Rs. 8309/- payable over a period of five years. In addition, HDFC Bank will also finance motorcycle customisation on the accessories of the Street 750 up to Rs. 50,000/-. Harley-Davidson offers 57 additional accessories options for customisation on the Street 750.
Harley-Davidson has sweetened the deal, making sure that their bikes are more attainable for the young urban customer base with the convenient finance options. The Street 750 is powered by a 749cc, four-valve, V-Twin engine that produces around 47 BHP of power and 65 Nm of torque, mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The bike has been heavily localised in the country to keep costs in check. The Street 750 is available across all 13 dealerships in the country and there is no immediate rival to this American cruiser.
