Electric Harley?

Not so bad from an outdated brand

Electric Harley production bike? - Motorcycle news: New bikes - Visordown

Some think its production ready...

R&D in the annual meeting in April there was mentions of some "market changing products" yet to come after the Project Rushmore and 500/750 Street presentation.

Maybe you have stumbled onto it. Or maybe they hacked a frame for the one off and that is why the stuff it on there?

Certainly would be interesting, but the battery technology is still the key as the Zero has shown.

At first I was going to say that I think an electric Harley is unlikely just given what the usual Harley customer is looking for, but when I saw that it was on the Avengers set I changed my mind. Given that in Captain America they had the production HD Street, it seems like Harley is taking the opportunity to show off bikes that will actually go on sale and not just bikes that are only conceptual.

Just can't be... I mean HD is still working on liquid cooled bikes that are not real Harleys. There is no way they would ever dare to stray even further away to battery-electric motorcycles...............

I am not really interested in fake exhaust notes for an electric bike. That just proves the point that Harley drivers are trying to be as loud as possible. I don't want to purposely annoy every person I drive by on the street.
