Harley-Davidson too has jumped the electric motorcycle bandwagon and while it is yet to launch a production variant of its Harley electric, reports have emerged that the bike marker has already started working on trademarks.
An application to trademark ‘H-D Revelation’ has been filed by Harley-Davidson with the USPTO. The trademark application, which was filed just under a week ago, will likely be used on electric motorcycle tech and not bikes. The application notes that it will be used on batteries and chargers, also including motors, transmissions and electric drives.
Harley-Davidson has already made its electric ambitions clear by unveiling Project LiveWire concept in 2014; however, there hasn’t been any production launch yet. In January this year, the bike maker announced plans to introduce a new electric model in the next 18 months, which would be a result of Project LiveWire. The ‘H-D Revelation’ is something we could see finally being badged on an electric motor then.
The name ‘Revelation’ has also been trademarked by Revelation Choppers, and while the trademark may not be valid presently, it may raise a concern for a Harley. That would explain why the bike maker has opted for H-D Revelation.
More recently, Harley-Davidson also filed patents for three new model names – Bronx, Pan America and 48X. The bikes are expected to debut sometime later this year.
