The 750cc Revolution X V-Twin engine from the sleek Street 750 is nestled in amongst the chunky bodywork, but drag racing enthusiasts Vance & Hines Motorsports have fettled it to ensure it delivers some gut-busting performance.
It’s all a bit hush-hush at the moment, but you can bet your bottom dollar that power has climbed considerably from the base bike’s 53bhp, and weight has been dramatically reduced to increase acceleration. In fact, the minimum weight set by GNC1 regulations is just 136kg, so it’ll be as close to a rocket-propelled bicycle as you can get.
Harley-Davidson has said that the XG750R is “strictly for racing” and “will not be offered for sale at this time” but it seems a shame to waste those bespoke Vance & Hines pipes and oversized race plates.
However, there are plenty of H-D custom shops out there, such as the formidable Shaw Speed & Custom in East Sussex, who would be willing to transform your Street 750 into a flat track warrior if you’re pockets are deep enough.
