Harley-Davidson Street 500 to be unveiled at Moto Expo
Harley-Davidson is set to unveil its highly anticipated new Street motorcycle platform at Moto Expo which runs from 28 -30 November. Honouring its first all-new motorcycle platform in 14 years, the iconic US brand has also temporarily renamed a Melbourne laneway – now known as ‘500 Street’.
Earlier this month, Harley-Davidson unveiled a disguised custom build of the Street at two-wheeled festival, Oil Stained Brain. However, the Australian motorcycling community will get its first full, close-up look at the all-new platform when Moto Expo opens its doors on Friday 28 November.
“Launching the all-new Street motorcycle platform against the backdrop of Moto Expo was a no brainer,” said Adam Wright, Director of Marketing for Harley-Davidson Australia and New Zealand. “The event is one of the most important for bike fans in Australia and New Zealand. We’re very excited to finally be able to lift the lid and give people a chance to see the Street motorcycle platform in the flesh.
“We’ve got some exciting things planned for the Moto Expo, but in the meantime, we wanted to do something special to honour this reveal. We’ve baptised a Melbourne laneway – ‘500 Street’ – in the lead up to the Moto Expo. Anyone interested can head along to 25 Easey Street in Collingwood to see it for themselves.” continued Wright.
Built for urban environments, the Harley-Davidson Street will line up as part of Harley-Davidson’s Dark Custom range. Available for Australia and New Zealand, the Harley-Davidson Street™ 500 will feature a new liquid-cooled Revolution X™ engine, housed in a specially designed new chassis.
The model also features a super-low seat height, innovative suspension and broad handlebar sweep to boast a premium but minimalist style.
Harley-Davidson will reveal prices, specifications and additional options when it lifts the lid on the new Street platform at Moto Expo.
