T HE R I VA L S
Triumph Street Twin £7750
The liquid-cooled ‘entry level’ 900 is an easy-to-ride roadster, has a little less power and torque than the Harley but is considerably lighter and comes with rider aids as standard.
Moto Guzzi V7 III Stone £7999
The air-cooled A2 licence compatible Guzzi also comes with rider aids including traction control. Classic Italian design, but a little down on power and torque compared to the Harley.
Yamaha XV950 Racer £8099
The air-cooled 942cc V-twin pushes out a claimed 51bhp and at 251kg meaning it’s heavier and more breathless than the Street Rod. The 765mm seat height is an exact match for the Harley.
