After scorching the ice at ESPN’s X Games Aspen, the new Harley-Davidson Street 750 will kick up the dirt — and the action — at X Games Austin with an adrenaline-fueled Flat Track exhibition race just weeks before the new bikes begin to arrive at U.S. dealerships. Highlights of the race will air on ESPN during the X Games competition coverage.
Reigning AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National champion Brad “the Bullet” Baker lead the exhibition race on the Street 750 — the first all-new motorcycle platform from Harley-Davidson in 13 years. In the spirit of the customer-led product development approach that Harley-Davidson undertook to create the Street motorcycle, fans will be the ones to decide if Flat Track racing should become a future medal sport at X Games Austin using #XGamesFlatTrack to make their voices heard.
“The action-packed environment at X Games Austin fits perfectly with the attitude and identity of the new Street 750 motorcycle,” said Dino Bernacchi, Director U.S. Marketing, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. “And, since we gathered input from more than 3,000 customers, riders and dealers in more than 10 countries around the world to create the Street platform, it seems only fitting to let our fans decide if Flat Track racing should become an X Games medal event.”
The Street 750 is the perfect “ride anywhere” bike and is designed to easily handle and escape the gridlock and stop-and-go demands of urban environments. The latest additions to the Dark Custom line-up, the Harley-Davidson Street 750 and Street 500 feature the all-new liquid-cooled Revolution X engine housed in a narrow and lean chassis built for agility. New suspension and a broad handlebar sweep provide the confidence and maneuverability you need when managing tight turns and fast moves – with a premium, minimalist style that serves as a blank canvas for riders to customize their own sense of personal freedom.
