Arrow Electric Motorcycle from Harley-Davidson!

Have a look at the Latest from Harley..An all electric bike (Alleged)

Im not sure how this will go down with the Harley purists, the appeal for them being the exhaust note.

But the design is certainly appealing.

The image has been clicked on the sets of the next avengers movie

Default Is the new HARLEY going to be a ELECTRIC!!??

Better watch that video quick, because it 'supposedly' has an expiry date marked for today!

Is this Harley reinventing itself for survival to the new generation with the old school Harley loyalists ageing out?

Comments please...

I would be Happy to see that sort of motorcycle coming from moco, if they keep on producing whatever they already are!

Atleast it shows that MOCO can make all sort of performance bikes , just that they choose Not to! well they have proven that to quite a bit by V-ROD

Well this might Just be a movie prop , looks more authentic just because US DMV laws call for Type approval even for Movie props ( If they are to be used on public road without shutting down public traffic). Only Movie props which are to be used on closed Circuit / closed down lanes can be granted permission without Type Approval.

Also these type of stunts are pulled by lot of companies , showing concepts here and there / breaking secret project news to media etc just to get their index climbing! and mint fast!

I have to admit that I was never really a Harley Davidson fan till now. Except for the V-Rod!

I saw the asphaltandrubber earlier this week and was stunned with what I actually saw! But Boy-O-Boy, This thing is just plain awesome! I mean, just look at that design! That frame! And even that drive train! Harley Davidson has just made me a fanboy of theirs! A standing ovation just for the fact that they atleast gave a thought about such a concept.

Waiting anxiously for tomorrow to see if this is a concept or a prototype of the production bike! Way to go H-D!!

WOW!!! Talk about keeping our options open.

While I would always go for the loud eardrum rupturing, thumping legacy machines, am sure a lot of guys would go for the new Sleek look and being Harley obviously this would be no slouch!!

Overall a smart business move from Harley. if they can be ‘environment conscious’ and develop a beast then why not? Electric option will provide the kick to the takeoff thanks to all the Torque at your disposal

I think something will be announced today. Lets see what HD has up their sleeve.

Now thinking of the future HD accessories on a electric bike, to my mind only an electric fly catcher comes to mind so bugs dont splatter on the jacket

Again WOW!!!! Love the design. Cannot digest the fact that a machine like this will roll out from the HD stables.
This will be a blockbuser for HD, hope they price it corretcly

Default Re: Tesla Model S: First Impressions

Since I have been doing some reading and watching videos on EVs, I happened to come across the H-D LiveWire video.



Some of the news articles say it might do around 84 miles. Not a lot, but then I thought its decent considering the size of the battery pack that can be fitted. That's until I saw this:



Rated at 211 km combined mileage! Torque of 143 N-m and 0-100 in 4.8 seconds!! Yes, its pricey. But then, that is expected.


A review (of Zero S) where the reviewer is thrilled and can't stop laughing and giggling:
