Harley Davidson Introduces Its First Electric Bike

Harley Davidson is an iconic company when it comes to motorbikes and has no doubt come a far way from when it was started. The image that will instantly pop up in your mind is that of a rugged looking biker when you hear the name Harley Davidson along with the roaring sound of a v-twin engine enough to make you wish you owned that bike. You would be surprised to know that this roaring sound is so peculiar and unique to Harley Davidson that it attempted trademark it back in the 1990s.

However, the bikers you find who own a Harley Davidson are no longer gang members but people with good standing and salaries. This is where the paradigm shift that has taken transportation market over comes in; going electric! Harley Davidson has announced Project LiveWire as a possible future for the company. The bike roars like a jet fighter ready for takeoff (Top Gun Moment – Heck, why not?)

According to Harley Davidson, the electric hog is capable of ‘tire-shredding performance’ and suggests that user compare it to an electric guitar instead of Nissan Leaf. As of now, LiveWire is on a tour of US dealerships in order to get customers’ review followed by tour of Canada and Europe next year.

We are moving towards a society where everything will be environment friendly and shall not deplete our natural resources and we fully congratulate Harley Davidson on realizing this dream and acting to achieve it.
