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.
