Harley Davidson 750 Stealth Dual Sport / Adventure Motorcycle is possible, but is it likely?
At this years annual 2016 Motorcycle show in Bangkok there was an “adventure” looking Harley, that right Harley Davidson! The Harley Davidson 750 Stealth – This bike was designed and built by Richy Wilson who is the co-owner of Richo Harley-Davidson (which is a dealership) in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
So did Harley Davidson Corporate approve this or is this just a one off bike this dealer was playing with, I guess time will tell. But anyway take a look at the pictures. It appears to be a nice blend of dual sport and Adventure bike, nice knobby tires, love the black rims.
It was touted as “built for the new generation of Harley enthusiasts” and has some off road adventure specs.
- Ohlins motocross front fork
- Monoshock suspension
- Dunlop motocross tires – 21-inch in front and 18-inch in the back
- Spoke black wheels
- Aluminium fuel tank
- Twin LED Daymaker headlamps
- Dual exhaust,
- Large side panniers and a topcase
I hope Harley give this bike some consideration, as not everyone wants just to cruise. Come on Harley!!!

Thanks Kawasaki for introducing a cool dual sport to the mix of adventure motorcycle market. The KLR is a staple in the industry and has a huge fan base of adventure riders and I’m really glad they are keeping it fresh, functional and still relatively simple.
