Hardly-Davidson? Famous brand reveals all-electric model
Text size Aa Aa

Motorbike manufacturer Harley-Davidson, known for its roaring engines, has done the unthinkable… and revealed an all-electric model.

The new bike, not yet on the market, lacks a fuel tank, exhaust pipe and the signature Harley Davidson growl. But it doesn’t seemingly mean any less power – it boasts a 74 horsepower engine and can go from 0 to 100km/h in less than four seconds.

The new motorcycle is being tested by riders around the United States, Canada and Europe to get feedback before it is released.

Matt Levatich, chief operating officer of Harley Davidson, told AFP: “We are curious to know what people think because it’s a project that can go in a lot of directions. We are at the beginning of a whole new industry. We’re very excited.”
