    Query Approved

    I have seen many people with big bikes in BBSR, including Harleys. Maybe you can check with existing owners there.
    @sajalsheth or @coolmaverickguy might be able to guide.

    Thanks @The Monk ji

    One of our rider Mr Prakash Nangalia uses HD 750 in Cuttack. He is happy with it.
    Every month one engineer comes from Kolkata for services and repairs all Harley-Davidson including street 750 for Odisha.
    So if you want I can give Prakash Bhai's contact number.

    You can go ahead and buy Harley-Davidson street 750. Hope your query is solved @santoshiprasad007 ji .

    Am owning one and YES the brakes are inadequate for first and second batch of S750s. Later they campout with improvised version that worked somewhat ok. The current ones are with ABS and are faaaaaar better from older versions. Basically its a combined issue of poor design of dynamics, poor design and built quality of brake parts and inadequate size of tyres.
    So incase if you are buying a new bike it will be a good choice. Jus replace the tyres with Michelin 110/70/17 in front and MRF VYDE 150/70/15 in rear. This wud make it an otherwise brilliant machine.

    Hope this helps!
