Harley-Davidson’s First Electric Motorcycle Surprisingly Doesn’t Suck | Autopia | WIRED.

I have my doubts, but I’m not the target market.  Young urbanites are.  A 53 mile range doesn’t get me too my favorite biker bar, much less back.  So… I’m not sure it’d work down here in the spread out south.  In a denser demographic, maybe.

  1. I couldn’t make it to work one way with that range. Seems to me that this puts it square in the kind of range that people buy scooters for. Buy a 75 mpg gas scooter for about 3k or this bigger, heavier and I’m sure much more expensive bike for way more money. Looks like the Motor Company figured out a way to keep shooting themselves in the foot.

    • While I tend to agree, the popularity of electric motorcycles in big urban areas is real.

      Plus, we have to remember this isn’t the final production run. I’m sure even more will be improved by then.

      But I routinely run over 100 miles on a single ride. So they will have to be much better than they are now.
