A concept which cam years ago is now back in form of: Harley Davidson electric bike
Harley Davidson electric bike: Harley Davidson raised many eyebrows as it rode from the LiveWire electric bike concept four decades back. The LiveWire held the distinction of being the very first Harley bike to include an electric power train since the fad manufacturer is renowned internationally for its burly cruisers powered by top displacement V-twin motors. As stated by the American bikemaker, the LiveWire has been an effort in estimating the answer of present owners and two-wheeler fans internationally for an electrical automobile and it appears to be a favourable one.
The aforementioned announcement does not come as a surprise since Harley has been observing fall in earnings globally and it also recently shut its manufacturing centre in Kansas City to reduce prices. While purists will be offended by the notion of an electrical Harley-Davidson, the electrical bike does open up a totally new section for its iconic brand and will bring in a new customer base also. Levatich did not disclose any details regarding the electric bike and did not even confirm whether the manufacturing bike is going to be contingent upon the LiveWire theory or not, however, we’re expecting it will, since the LiveWire was still an impressive looking bike.
The LiveWire was observed in Hollywood movie “Avengers:Age of Ultron” that assisted it in garnering worldwide recognition, however, since the Bar & Shield are silent concerning the electrical bike until today. It might deal with the 0-100kmp dashboard in under four seconds however, the bike only had a assortment of 88.5kilometers and that also in eco-mode. Harley had set itself a goal of 160km scope for its production version and also given the progress in battery technologies, the above does not appear to be a far given expectation. A growing number of producers are focusing on electrical vehicles, but it is just KTM (Freeride E-XC) one of the significant players who has an electrical bike under its own portfolio as other manufacturers are focusing on electrical scooters. The electric bicycle will lack the iconic “potato-potato-potato” exhaust note, however, we’re curious to observe an electric bike using the mythical Bar & Shield logo.
