Harley E-bike

I'm digging it. I'd give her a run around the block.

I'm with you on this one Taco.

But that styling with a SP twin would be sweet

What H-D owner demographic produced this?

Hope it comes with a hefty power outlet so the faithful can plug in their industrial strength Mattel Sound Of Power Screaming Night Hog Sound Track of baffle-less drag pipes.
Since, just because it's battery powered doesn't mean can't sound like a REAL Harley.

It is kind of odd they're trying to find younger customers from within their HD base. Best to shot for all customers as this is still an emerging market.

I'm actually digging the enhanced sound they've created. I'm not big on the silent runners. I've had a chance to ride a zero, not a big fan on the motor wine.

i really like the look of it. words, i didn't think i would say anytime soon of a harley. I have seen some studies that they are really losing out on the younger demographic as alot of the die-hard harley riders are getting older, what's next? a sports bike again?

I'm sure most of the Harley world will vehemently reject this bike, much like they did with the V-Rod. They are so resistant to change.


I like it though!! I hope it makes it to production, although I doubt I could afford one if they do sell.
