Harley-Davidson has unveiled its first electric bike, named after ‘Serial Number One,’ its earliest-known motorcycle from 1903.
Harley-Davidson has finally unveiled the e-bike project it’s been working on for the last few years. The Serial 1, named after the earliest-known Harley-Davidson motorcycle, is expected to go on sale in March 2021. The company to build it is HD’s new e-bike division – the Serial 1 Cycle Company.
The Serial 1’s design is a nostalgic hat tip to the 1903 Serial Number One motorcycle with its white tires, leather saddle and handgrips, and black frame. It features a mid-drive motor and belt drive and a frame-integrated battery and lights (headlight and taillights).
The bike is the result of research and development by the company’s Product Development Center, where a group of “passionate motorcycle and bicycle enthusiasts” came together to design and develop an electric bike “worthy of the Harley-Davidson name.”
There is no further information about the Serial 1’s specs and its price at this time.
Harley-Davidson isn’t the first known motorbike company to build an e-bike. Triumph announced the Trekker GT earlier this year, and Ducati unveiled its own e-bike last year. Car companies also want in on the action, with companies like BMW making electric bikes and motorcycles, Audi and Jeep building electric mountain bikes, and Mercedes-Benz announcing an electric scooter.
