When we think about Roadster bikes ! The name of Harley-Davidson cover all thoughts. The Street Bob takes pleasure in great success in the Harley-Davidson range. Inventor of the line of Dark Customs, this factory bobber exults in 2013 this attractive Special Edition. Twin 103 s, red rims, sequins and scallops, the Harley-Davidson SE Street Bob is the way bobber hot road!
The Street Bob caused a stir when it was introduced in late 2008. This Dyne has democratized the bobber style, and launched the current Dark Custom so valued by the Motor Company in recent years. Today, the Harley-Davidson Street Bob is an “installed” model and better revive the public interest, Harley-Davidson he has added a more muscular version, the Street Bob SE for Special Edition. We share a ride to her High handlebar?
Metal chip and big bowls
Start the outset, the Harley-Davidson SE is quite different from the standard version by its flashy paint and red wheels. While the metal flake from Hard Candy Custom program will not be to everyone’s taste, and Black Denim Street Bob will continue his brilliant career. But for those who want to stand out – and this is still the reason for the custom – this variant is worth seeing.
Red veil. Assorted nets tank the spoked wheels is also subject to controversy. However at least the decoration done speaking, that’s something. Then the 103 logo adorning the covers in turn feeds the debate “? Ah, but this is the big engine It grows” Come on, we will not pray to start the engine on the deserted avenue. Properly approved, but already very sympathetic ear at very low speeds, the V-twin 1690 cm3 put backs the Twin Cam 96.
This engine is equipped with an exhaust valve that opens and closes according to engine speed, particularly to meet the standards for noise productions. To enjoy its timeless music, you slowly open the throttle and let it crack by small accelerator close shots. However finally, is this the expected monster?
Extra expected than it look likes
While the Bob SE 103, like all Harley-Davidson is still the pride of the metal and scheme to stop his 314 kg fully fueled always calls arms. Nonetheless, the center of gravity is low and astonish, the position is less extreme than the profile suggests. Already, the lumber is low only 680 mm and it is ultimately more the width of the crankcase which hinder smaller templates to put your feet on the ground without roasting ankles.
Then, half imitate hanger handlebars enables relaxed driving, but do not take the cuffs so high that it skyward. Static, some reveal the fact tan under the arm while driving, in reality, there is little or nothing and only long motorway journeys will confirm binding. Lastly, the foot controls are rather central to a custom.
So, as long as you control any less the weight of the beast, the grip does not pose fundamental concern. Just play the generous torque to bring the Street Bob SE onward and facilitate its placement. But this is not Dyna another more hard to drive.
Hot Rod courage
Very quickly we perceive the “sport” side of Bob SE. its Weight/torque ratio is very favorable, and quickly shifting gears and opening the gas frankly, you are entitled to stunning sensations.
Thrust liberal couple in the back rather lively engine if you are on the right rev range, great maneuverability to play with changes in support, whether on the boulevards or minute roads, a rate is adopted more sporty with the Bob SE with many motorbikes Harley-Davidson range.
In reality, Street Bob 103 could almost be as dynamic as the Fat Bob, but smaller ground clearance and braking requires more anticipation have enough control the enthusiasm. The Street Bob SE 103 has nevertheless two faces, and that is also what makes it great.
It can be rolled quietly on the torque at 60 km/h in 6th without downshifting or send wood to aggressively jump from one corner to the other. A very appealing motorbike final, which lets you play or cruiser. In addition, its overall sooth, comfort, limited in absolute terms, is not as Spartan as it seems.
Evaluation-What is left for large provisions?
With this version of the big heart Street Bob Harley-Davidson sobering. Indeed, sold $ 20068 USD, the Street Bob SE costs just USD 825 more than the standard Street Bob ($19243). A price difference actually quite low, which should be an argument for resale.
In addition, many homeowners go through Stage 1 box (or 2 or 3) to make its luster mechanical Milwaukee. With the above 103, the level of preparedness to meet beautiful sensations will be less important in the past Stage 1, the Twin Cam 103 becomes downright friendly.
GHGD then it will weigh the pros and cons between rolling stock with a version 103 or above configuration stage 1 or 2 with a standard Street Bob. Anyhow, the fun will be in the game.
