Testing an Electric Harley Without the Vroom (VIDEO)

Written by Pat Papers | Friday, 8 August 2014 7:54 AM

Harley-Davidson is giving fans a first look at its new electric motorcycles. The question is - will riders go for a bike that doesn’t roar? The electric Harley has no exhaust, no vibration and no fumes. But there’s also no roar of the engine. Instead, the bike makes a jet-like whine. The company says the bikes reach 60 miles per hour in about 4 seconds and can go around 60 miles between charges. The Seattle Times says the company hopes the bikes will appeal to younger, tech-savvy riders.
