Meet Bandit9 ‘Dark Side’ – An Aerodynamic Masterpiece!
Looking at Harley-Davidson Street 750 was never that different. The most selling Harley cruiser of India, Street 750, went into the hands of Bandit9 Motorcycles and came up with this amazing body transformation. Known by the name ‘Dark Side’, Street 750 here takes clear inspiration from salt racers that are built to test how fast a motorcycle can go when ridden on earth.
Fortunately, this one is road legal and has no such high performance requirement on its shoulder. Bandit9 replaced its stock alloys with 16-inch chrome spoke wheels while extra fat rubber was even used on both the ends. Moving slightly above this change, one can notice all new, thicker USD forks and extended front headlight cowl. This now comes with small headlight opening and one enlarged curved piece of frame that supports the same styled windshield.
The smooth flow of this unit is passed successfully to its fuel tank, that too flowing like a drop of water and ending right under the rider seat. Custom swing-arm holds the rear wheel and hence, the overall wheelbase gets extended by few extra inches. Rear headlight is integrated within the seat while Vance and Hines competition series exhaust further enhance its overall beauty. Powered by a 749cc twin cylinder engine, Harley-Davidson Street 750 is good for 59 Nm of massive torque at just 3750 rpm.
This makes it good for 177 kmph of top speed and effectively smooth cruising capability in triple digit speeds. Stock bike weighs 233 kg while Dark Side loses 4 kg to weigh just 229 kg. The motorcycle comes with $32,000 (INR 20.44 Lakh) worth of price tag, including the shipping price to any destination around the world. If their official website is to be believed, Dark Side is tuned to produce 57.6 HP at 7955 rpm and 58.30 Nm at 3790 rpm.
