So far, the only thing we’ve known about Harley-Davidson’s upcoming electric bicycles is that they are coming. But now we’ve received new info that sheds some light on what H-D is planning for the lightest motorbikes they’ve ever built. The new info comes to us by way of a Harley-Davidson dealership employee.

Speaking to Electrek on the condition of anonymity, he shared some new information provided by a high-ranking member of the Harley-Davidson Dealership Advisory Council (DAC).
According to the information provided, Harley-Davidson is planning to offer a range of e-bike speed classes. For Europe, Harley-Davidson would produce a lower-power e-bike with a top speed of just 25 km/h (15.5 mph). Meanwhile, that model of e-bike in the US would receive a slightly higher 32 km/h (20 mph) top speed, classifying it as a Class 1 e-bike stateside.

Harley-Davidson will apparently also be producing higher-speed electric bicycles up to 45 km/h (28 mph) for the US market, according to the source.

The prices of the bikes will fall in the $2,500 to $5,000 range, the source added.

And despite the initial press photos released by Harley-Davidson appearing to show e-bikes with just one brake lever, all of the e-bikes will have two brake levers. The confusion apparently came from the angles of the photos that made the brake levers appear to disappear. The source also provided internal literature regarding Harley-Davidson’s design and planning process for the new electric bicycles. Interestingly though, this information contradicts the DAC regarding the speed of H-D’s electric bicycles.
