Iconic motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson has introduced its first fully electric motorcycle, offering bikers the chance to test and provide feedback on what would they expect from an electric motorbike.
Part of the company’s Project LiveWire, the innovative eco-friendly motorbike was unveiled by Harley Davidson’s chief marketing officer Mark-Hans Richer during an event in New York on Monday.
Capable of driving at up to 150 km/h, the bike has a range of 130 miles before it needs recharging – a procedure which would take between 30 minutes and one hour. Harley-Davidson says the vehicle will be able to accelerate to 60mph in four seconds.
Harley-Davidson enthusiasts had a chance to put the bike to test.
