2016 XG500 HARLEY-DAVIDSON STREET 500 Velocity Red Paint. Liquid-cooled, Revolution X™ V-Twin. With cool, dark styling, urban agility, and the Revolution X™ engine, the Harley-Davidson Street® 500 invites young riders everywhere to ride into personal freedom. It’s built for maximum maneuverability, complemented by a minimalist, blacked-out design. The action goes from stoplight to stoplight, boulevard to back alley. At the center of it all you carve through heat, chaos and gridlock with ease. You get a liquid-cooled Revolution X™ engine loaded with torque and built to thrive in stop and go traffic. A light frame with an easy lock-to-lock handlebar sweep for quick moves. And dark styling details like blacked out pipes, cafe©-style windscreen and fork gaiters to put the edge on the look. Got any plans for the evening?
