Wow, 30k in 5 months ! Have the upgraded the brakes on that 750 ? Do HD themselves have any upgrades for the braking system in their accessories list ?

I booked a Street 750 yesterday at Seven Islands, Mumbai. They do not yet have any upgrades for the braking system in their accessories list. Atleast this dealership has bikes in stock. Paid today and delivery date indicated is next Saturday or even earlier, depending on time taken at the RTO.

Lucky you!!! The waiting period in Bangalore can range anywhere between 2-3 months and it does not matter which colour you choose.

I booked my bike on the 27th Dec and I was asked to wait for 3 months, but surprisingly I got a call yesterday from Tusker Harley stating that they have 2 bikes available and asked if I wanted to take my bike now. I readily agreed!! Now waiting for the Bank to get my loan approved. So if everything goes well, I should have my bike in a week.

Congrats cardope , do post lots of pics.

Is there any word from HD on slight improvements to the braking system on the newer bikes since that was a major concern for most ( ok me at least ) considering the power of this bike. With no ownership thread here currently not sure how the brakes are for beginners.

There are threads of 750 ownership. Please search. Even for the 2015 one.
The brakes seem to be the same as per reports. Yes one needs to be careful considering the power.

Anyone interested in the Street 750 should definitely read this interview too.

very insightful interview. I didn't know that we have an Indian designer as part of the core design team at HD. Thanks for sharing!

I happened to speak to the service adviser at Tusker Harley today and he confirmed that the 2014 Street 750's had issues with the Rear Brake Cylinder and they did change quite a few cylinders as well (not sure if they did a silent recall or they were changed when customers got them to the service center for the bike service). Anyway, as per what he said on the 2015 models the rear brake issue is non existent and the brake should be working fine.
I have a 2015 model Street 750 and have ridden the bike for close to 1200 kms in the past month and during this period, I have never faced issues on the rear brake not doing what it's supposed to do. The bike has always stopped without any issues when I hit the brakes. I have never had a chance to panic brake (and hoping that I never have to do that!), but under normal circumstances the brakes behave well.

Not sure if its posted earlier. Gujarat Police seem to be the first in the country to buy couple of Harleys for their escort duties!

We already have a thread about this, and everyone did remark about the colossal waste of public money for "tashan-baazi" (टशन / style / panache)

Harley has upgraded the Street 750, the Iron 883, and the Forty-Eight.
The Street has new color options and apparently the brakes have been upgraded. I wonder if they have paid attention to the mirrors, which are hideous and useless.

The Iron gets a new suspension and lighter wheels. Also a better seat.

Anybody ridden the upgraded Street 750 to test the brakes?

It would be interesting to see the brakes being upgraded as well as new colours.....And then.....it would be great to have a street750 vs Bonnie comparo thread to help potential buyers make the choice. The pune HD dealer gives a test ride only in the amanora shopping centre internal road which is by no means helpful to buyers as regards the ride quality and power of the bike etc.
