Harley-Davidson will produce an electric bike in next 5 years


During the course of a recent conversation with the Milwaukee Business Journal, Harley-Davidson’s Sean Cummings – the iconic US motorcycle manufacturer’s SVP of Global Demand – revealed that the bike maker has efforts underway to manufacture an electric Harley within the next five years.

Though Cummings hinted at a possible launch of an electric Harley model in 2021, he stopped short of disclosing any information about the e-bike.

But, going by the speculations, the upcoming electric Harley model will probably be different from the electric Project LiveWire motorcycle which was unveiled by Harley-Davidson a few years back.

In reporting Cummings apparent commitment to a timeline on electric Harley production, the Milwaukee Business Journal quoted Asphalt And Rubber (A&R) citing Cummings as thus: “Harley-Davidson will produce an electric motorcycle for customer within the next five years.”

However, terming the statement as “superfluous,” A&R also explained that “lead times on new models – motorcycles that actually require engineering and design, not just a different fuel tank and extra letters – take roughly three to five years, from concept to completion.”
