Harley-Davidson has already shown its interest in electric motorcycles when it announced its first electric bike, the Livewire. The company has been developing this bike for quite some time now and it is most likely to hit the showrooms in the USA pretty soon. However, before that happens, Harley-Davidson showcased two more new electric bike concepts at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019 in Las Vegas.
Both the two concepts have got a very minimalistic design approach. The first concept, what it appears to be, is an electric scooter. It has a single-piece saddle with an upright riding posture. There is a good amount of space between the saddle and the battery pack underneath. This space could be utilized to store things. The wheels are not alloys but spokes. There is a disc brake at the front. The headlight seems to be a ring and would be LED.
The other concept is more of an off-road moped. It features knobby tires and a compact handlebar. The design is again very minimalistic with almost zero bodywork and no headlight. It seems that this machine would be able to handle many kinds of terrain.
Harley-Davidson didn’t release any solid information about these new concept electric bikes. We can expect them to see the light of the day because now Harley-Davidson is pretty serious about electric motorcycles. Chances are that the USA will be the first market to see a production-ready model of these concepts.
