Cool2 Harley "Street" to dirt?

So Harley has a new liquid cooled V twin entry level 750. On paper it looks equal to the Triumph retro bike, which spawned the Scrambler.

Claimed wet weight is 475, 25 less than the Scrambler.

Harley isn't going to build a scrambler, but an individual could. The factory has created a flat track racer based on the bike, which is cool .

Your thoughts?

A standard based on this bike would be most welcome, at which point a scrambler configuration wouldn't be much of a jump. Many of us would like the Motor Company to look beyond the cruiser crowd.

A few shots of the dirt-tracker that was built for the X-Games which is going to have flat-track racing as a sport this round.



It was built by Vance and Hines and has a custom frame, PM wheels, V&H exhaust and lots of other goodies.

That's a good looking bike. We can only hope.

Stock, the 750 is around 55HP on the ground. With tuning, there should be more available. Does pose an interesting concept though.

Sure wish we had the Del Mar Mile back...
