Harley-Davidson in Captain America

 

The Harley-Davidson Street 750 returns for the next instalment in the Marvel Comics movie Captain America: Civil War coming in 2016.

Harley has a joint partnership with Marvel Comics and their bikes have appeared in several movies over the past few years.

The Street 750 featured in Captain America: The Winter Soldier before the bike was launched, along with the Softail Breakout, Harley’s top-seller in Australia. Scarlett Johansson has also ridden the electric Livewire in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.Captain America Harley-Davidson Street 750

Now, the official trailer of Captain America: Civil War reveals a tantalising short glimpse at the one-minute mark of a modified Street 750 being ridden by actor Sebastian Stan who plays Bucky Barnes in the film.

Modifications include LED taillights, red shocks with gas reserves and possibly a Screamin’ Eagle exhaust.Captain America Harley-Davidson Street 750

While it’s not a new model, it may be a clue to a facelifted model.

After all, the olive green paint job with a big Captain America star on the tank of the new Softail Slim S points to the Breakout that Captain America rode in the previous movie.

  1. I was wondering do you know what kind motorcycle Bucky was on at the beginning of Civil War when he makes the Stark’s crash their car.

  2. In regard to this article about the Harley-Davidson being used in the Next Captain America Movie coming out next May. I agree with you that this “could be” a modified XG750 (Street 750), but as you mention: Modifications include LED taillights, red shocks with gas reserves and possibly a Screamin’ Eagle exhaust. If you look at two of the different shots of the bike (front and from birds eye view) the front fairing is a different fairing than what comes on the bike stock. And if you notice this unit has a completely different front end with dual front disk brakes, no boots on the forks, shorter front fender, and possibly beefier stanchion tubes. So I say this is yes, either a “heavily” modified Street 750, or a New model like a Street 750 Sport, or possibly a Street 1000. Tough to tell by these pictures, but the rear tire looks wider as well from stock, which would indicate a larger displacement or sport designation model. Either way, were excited. 🙂
