Electric – Harley Davidson will produce an electric motorcycle within the next five years. A new bike for the market. Sean Cummings, Senior Vice President of global demand, said it to the Milwaukee Business Journal.
After the LiveWire project, Harley Davidson wants to pass from custom bikes to electric bikes. It will create a new model. However, we don’t know much yet. We don’t have too details. Maybe, Harley wants to follow the example of Victory Motorcycle. In particular, the brand of Milwaukee would create a rival of Victory Empulse TT. Also, it wants to replicate the racing programs showing at the Isle of Man TT and at Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. For us, the Harley’s announcement is premature. The time to realize this kind of motorcycle is very long. About three to five years. It’s the time to pass from a concept to a real motorcycle. This bike takes more time to be designed and built-in comparison to a traditional bike. The real news is that Harley-Davidson begins officially his new project.
The key to success is building an electric transmission property
It’s not a secret. Harley Davidson thinks about an electric model. So, the brand of Milwaukee hired engineers able to work on the electrical transmission. Although he lost the opportunity to buy Mission Motors, after a bad period. The key to success is building an electric transmission property. However, the challenge will be not technical. The Harley’s fans must accept the new bike. Millions of fans who like only cruisers, bobbers and choppers. The purpose of project LiveWire was precisely to understand the reaction of Harley Davidson’s owners and the public. Harley Davidson must have appreciated the responses. Now, we are certainly looking forward to seeing what will create Harley-Davidson. If Harley decides to head for the electric driven means that something big is coming.
