Electric bicycles are part of Harley-Davidson's large electric vehicle production plan.
Harley-Davidson published a couple of months ago several images of their first electric bikes. Now, the company has brought these models to the Milan EICMA 2019 motor show, which takes place these days in the world fashion capital.
Harley-Davidson electric bikes will be in the premium segment. Their cost is expected to reach $ 2500 – $ 5000. As can be seen in the photos, the electric motor is located in the central part of the bicycle. It is connected via a belt drive to the rear inner hub. One of the prototypes is even equipped with an Enviolo automatic transmission, which is used only in expensive models.
All three electric bikes are also equipped with high-quality hydraulic disc brakes, which seem to use massive 203 mm rotors. Again, such components are commonly used in top mountain bikes.
Of the other interesting features of the prototypes, it is worth noting the presence of rear lights built into the frame of the bicycle. But the front LED-lamp, most likely, is made as a rim around the Harley-Davidson logo. As for the battery, it seems to be removable. However, the compact size of the battery compartment may indicate its small capacity. However, in production models this component can be changed.
