Harley-Davidson launches an e-bike so you can say you ride a Harley

On November 16, Harley-Davidson unveils its new bike: a real bike.

The Serial 1 is the first electric bike in what will be a new product line from the American motorcycle manufacturer. Harley-Davidson introduced its first electric motorcycle, the LiveWire, last year, but soon ran into production issues (with the battery).

The company doesn’t share much about the new bike’s capabilities or even its price, but a spokesperson wrote in an email that it’s aimed at motorcycle enthusiasts, commuters and beginners. It will be an electric-assisted bike, which means that when you pedal on the electric motor, a battery will provide extra power for your ride.

As seen in a video and photos released this week, the Serial 1 will have a mid-mounted motor, internal breakout cables to give it a clean look, and lighting for night riding.

The design, with its white wheels and vintage handlebars, is inspired by the first Harley-Davidson motorcycle from 1903.

It’s still a Harley.

It clearly says Harley-Davidson on the frame, so even though it’s “just an e-bike”, it’s still a Harley. You can’t pre-order the bike yet, but you can sign up for updates on the new dedicated website. By November 16, we’ll know more about Harley’s new electric vehicle.
