Yes, you heard that absolutely right! Renowned American motorcycle brand Harley-Davidson that is well known for leisure biking is all set to launch its range of electric bikes over the next decade. The company had unveiled its eco-friendly project Livewire back in the year 2014 that is currently under development stages. The upcoming Harley Davidson electric bikes will be a part of as many as 100 motorcycles that the company has planned for the coming decade.
If some reports are to be believed, these eco-friendly Harley bikes will be positioned under a sub brand instead of being directly retailed under the parent company. Coming back to the Harley-Davidson Project LiveWire, the company had claimed that this electric motorcycle matches the Iron 883 in terms of performance.
The reason behind is the 7 kWh battery pack that helps in developing a maximum power output of 74 bhp along with a peak torque of 70 Nm. With this, the motorcycle has the capacity to cover a distance of 85 kms under a single full charge. Also Read: Kolkata Police adds five customised Harley Davidson Street 750s to its fleet
