New Bike To Star in Exhibition Flat Track Race

Harley Street 750, modified for flat track

After scorching the ice at ESPN’s X Games Aspen, the new Harley-Davidson Street 750 will kick up the dirt at X Games Austin, with an adrenaline-fueled Flat Track exhibition race just weeks before the new bikes are set 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 will lead the exhibition race on the Street 750. Echoing the customer-led product development approach that Harley-Davidson used 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.

Flat Track Racing – An Original Action Sport

Harley-Davidson is no stranger to action sports. The company has had an official H-D Factory Racing team in existence for 100 of its 111-years. “Long before events like X Games, Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders were pushing the limits of their motorcycles up hills, around wooden board tracks, across beaches, on ice and through the mud,” added Dino Bernacchi, Director of U.S. Marketing. “The Street 750 is the perfect motorcycle to help introduce the next generation of passionate riders to the amazing experiences and thrills that await them on two wheels.”

As fans watch the Street 750 motorcycle get dirty at X Games Austin, the new bikes will make their long-awaited debut at Harley-Davidson dealerships nationwide in the coming weeks. MSRP for the Street 750 is $7,499 (Vivid Black) and $7,794 (Denim Black, Mysterious Red Sunglo), while the Street 500 MSRP starts at $6,799 (Vivid Black) and $7,094 (Denim Black, Mysterious Red Sunglo).
