Harley released a teaser video of what the upcoming electric bike – a first in the brands foray into electric motorcycles. While there are no clear details on the specifications of the electric motor or the performance figures of the motorcycle, the classic V-twin thumb is missing as the motorcycle quietly swooshes past the scenery. Harley is known to manufacture motorcycles which have a macho appeal with their signature crankpin V-twin creating a throaty ‘chug chug’ sound as the motorcycles cruise along on wide open highways. The 105 year old manufacturer has had the same philosophy to promote their brand since its inception. But with the announcement of its first-ever electric motorcycle the brand is taking a huge deviation from its beliefs. Change is necessary and that is exactly what the Milwaukee based manufacturer is up for. Infact, with this move Harley would not only be changing the general outlook of cruiser motorcycles, but would also be the innovators in bringing electric powertrains to this segment of motoring. Although details are sketchy regarding the performance figures and other specifications of this new Harley, the electric cruiser is set to unveil their electric motorcycle on June 19 at 5PM ET (5:30 IST). With the eventuality of internal combustion engines to be on their way out and into the books of history, this might be a smart move by Harley Davidson. As for their fans and followers around the world, only time will tell as to how they take to the company’s new ideation.
