Jedi Customs are back with this beautifully built Harley-Davidson Street 750, looking more like a cafe racer. This heavily customized Street 750 belongs to Sarthak Jadhav of Kohlapur. The high level of trust in Jedi Customs was kept alive through this beautiful transformation by the modifiers. They kept the engine in stock condition and hence, one could expect more thrill from the powerful motor with all-new position and premium components. The front headlight lost its cover but remained the stock Harley unit.

Looking slightly down, one will notice the use of premium USD forks that are much thicker than stock suspension and perfectly going well with its cafe racer personality. The tyre used here is almost double in thickness and hence, you get more ground clearance on this typical Street 750. Jedi Customs added another disc brake for effective braking on the motorcycle.

Curves from Street 750 were lost as a cafe racer design fuel tank was used in place of the huge Harley tank. Alloy wheels made way for the spoke rims while ribbed, brown finished seat raised the character further up by one level. Paioli dual shocks from RE Continental GT were used for better suspension promise on this Custom Harley.

Kolkata: Kolkata Police, which has so far relied on the trusty Royal Enfield, are now adding Harley Davidson to their fleet. The bikes will be customized for the use of the police force and will mostly be used for ceremonial purposes. They will be the second police force to receive Harleys. Back in 2015, Gujarat Police had added Harley motorcycles to its fleet.

For starters, Kolkata Police have bought five Harley Davidsons Street 750s. The bikes will only be able to seat one rider as it has been fitted with pillion seat cowls. Saddlebags, flashers and sirens have also been added. They’ve also been given new graphics and stickers as well as a Kolkata Police emblem on the windscreen and will have built-in radios to communicate with the control room.

Solomon Nesakumar, DCP Traffic and himself an avid biker, said the reason for the addition is that the Harleys are a lot faster. While the Royal Enfield goes from 0-100 kph in 16 seconds, the 750 can do it in about 6.17 seconds.

“We have bought five ‘Harley Davidsons Street 750’ for ceremonial and piloting purpose. On Tuesday, during Independence Day’s ceremonial parade, we exhibited them for the first time on Red Road in Kolkata,” he said.

The DCP said that all the bikes have been stationed at the police headquarters at Lalbazaar. “We bought it because we need to update our infrastructure in this fast changing global scenario. All bikes are customized as per our requirement,” he said.

Kolkata Commissioner of Police, Rajeev Kumar said, “This is a welcome move from our department and in future there are other plans to improve our infrastructure to serve people with utmost care. Initially we have decided to use these bikes for VIP patrolling and ceremonial purpose.”
