The wait is over!

It’s been a year since we heard of Harley-Davidson’s electric bike project and the bike design. However, today, Harley-Davidson has revealed a beautiful electric bike and confirmed that it will be for sale in March 2021. Apparently, the motorcycle manufacturer is all set to spin out its e-bike divisions as well, but that would be an individual company called Serial 1 Cycle.

If you feel overwhelmed with nostalgia by hearing Serial Number One then you’re old enough to recall the oldest known motorcycle that was built in 1903. The design of the bike includes white tires, leather saddle, and handgrips. There’s also a sleek black frame which is supposed to harken back to its first prototype.

Since Harley-Davidson isn’t offering any specification, we can only think what the battery size, power levels and the price range would be. Looking at the photos, we can estimate the Serial 1 has one mid-drive motor, along with a belt drive system, and a frame-integrated battery. There are also frame-integrated headlights and taillights.

However, we’re sure that these weren’t exactly the three prototypes that Harley unveiled last year at the EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan.

According to news, Aaron Frank is the BrandManager of Serial 1, and he refused to comment on the future models, but he said that the current prototype should be enough to indicate the future of Serial 1 eBicycles.

“Great steps are being taken to make the bikes as easy and intuitive to operate as possible, which includes key features like a mid-mounted motor with integrated battery, integrated lighting and internal brake lines and wiring.” – said Frank said in an email.

Ever since the pandemic started, the US has seen a massive explosion in the Electric bike sales – unfortunately, most of them are imported from overseas. Look at the statistic: The US imported 270,000 e-bikes last year. According to the Light Electric Vehicle Association, it will end somewhere between 500,000 and 600,000.

Harley is all set to enter an already competitive market, where there are bike manufacturer giants like Trek, Specialized, Pedego, X-Treme Electric Bikes, Rad Power Bikes, etc.
