Harley-Davidson has taken some pretty drastic measures lately to secure its place in the market. We discovered the magnitude of these measures on January 20, 2021 when the Motor Company confirmed their upcoming line-up. While the digital show is mostly focused on what’s new and exciting in the Harley showroom, it also marks the end of the journey of some of the famous models that have silently disappeared from their makers’ websites.
In the “Street” category, the Sportster line-up is reduced to just three models, with the Iron 883 and 1200 and the Forty-eight remaining to defend the entry-level stronghold. The beginner-friendly Street 500 and 750 were officially discontinued, ending Harley’s era of small and medium-sized displacement.
2021 Harley-Davidson Street 500 Dark, Aggressive, Custom Look Sports all-black two-in-one exhaust, black cast aluminum wheels, blackened front end with café-inspired speed screen and chrome steel medallions on the fuel tank.
The seat height is only 28 inches. And the frame and seat are narrow, so the reach is easier. The low seat advantage also lights up when the light turns green. This gives you a low center of gravity so you can be confident as you get out of the traffic and just slowly roll through the parking lot looking for a place.
500cc Liquid-Cooled Revolution X Engine The blackened, liquid-cooled V-Twin engine is designed to handle the hot, congested urban traffic. You can count on a smooth progressive throttle response as you attempt to drive through the hole open in front of you.
Optional Anti-Lock Braking Systems (ABS) The advanced factory-installed ABS gives you confidence in the saddle and knows your bike will work when needed.
