Harley-Davidson has been producing motorcycles since 1903.
The Harley-Davidson Street Bob is a “bobber”–a type of motorcycle that typically has no front fender, a shortened or “bobbed” rear fender, and no superfluous parts or luxury equipment. This makes the bike lighter so that it can move faster and maneuver more tightly. The Street Bob is part of the Dyna family of Harley-Davidson motorcycles. It was released in 2006.
The 2007 Street Bob saw the introduction of a larger, 96-cubic-inch V-Twin four-stroke engine, up from 88 cubic inches in 2006. This motor provides 124.75 Nm of torque, or 92 ft.-lbs., at 3000 RPM. With a bore of 3.8 inches and a stroke of 4.4 inches, its compression ratio is 9:2:1. An ESPFI, or electronic sequential port fuel injection, and an air cooling system contributes to this motor’s power. It sports a six-speed transmission, a multi-plate clutch with a diaphragm spring in an oil bath, and a chrome exhaust system. Its fuel consumption averages 53.1 mpg, and it emits an average of 102.8 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer.
