Harley-Davidson was one of the first major motorcycle manufacturers to add electric motorcycles to its lineup last decade. It should come as no surprise then that the company’s CEO Jochen Zeitz is already saying that the brand’s future will be 100% electric.Expand Expanding Close
It’s been over two years since Harley-Davidson spun off Serial 1 as its quasi-independent electric bicycle company. The first generation bikes were met with nearly universal acclaim for their sleek design and high-quality manufacturing.

After beginning sales in the US and recently opening up sales in Europe, Harley-Davidson’s electric bicycle brand Serial 1 has now expanded into Canada, where its e-bikes will be available exclusively at 15 of Canada’s Harley-Davidson dealerships.Expand Expanding Close

So, how’d it perform?

Back in 2018 Harley-Davidson unveiled one of the coolest-looking electric mopeds we had seen at the time. But years later the Milwaukee-based motorcycle manufacturer hasn’t shown us any more progress than a two-year-old prototype.
That opened the door for others to try their hand at Harley’s design, and a Chinese motorbike manufacturer seems to have created a pretty decent copy of the design.Expand Expanding Close

Harley-Davidson has made impressive strides in electric vehicle development, and not just for its LiveWire electric motorcycle halo product. The company’s electric scooter prototype is positioned to be a much more affordable and accessible electric two-wheeler, and here is why it is needed now more than ever.
It’s no secret that Harley-Davidson has been in a tough financial spot for the last few years. And the figures from Harley-Davidson’s first-quarter earning’s call indicate that the COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t made the picture any rosier.
But after H-D’s acting CEO Jochen Zeitz laid out the company’s cash preservation plan and profitability strategy to deal with the effects of the global financial downturn, which included reaffirming the company’s commitment to electric motorcycles, the company’s stock price has been on a tear.
Harley-Davidson (H-D) hasn’t been shy about expanding its focus into electric two-wheelers, including Harley-Davidson electric bicycles and e-motorcycles. However, so far, we’ve only seen one vehicle make it to production: the Harley-Davidson LiveWire electric motorcycle. The latest clues indicating that the LiveWire will be getting a few little electric brothers come in the form of these recent filings for upcoming H-D electric vehicles.
The LiveWire may have been Harley-Davidson’s first foray into electric motorcycles, but it certainly wasn’t its last. And taking a look at the next Harley-Davidson electric motorcycle in the works may help lend some insight into the direction this legacy motorcycle manufacturer is headed.
We’ve been covering the upcoming Harley-Davidson electric scooter project since the day it was announced as part of the More Roads to Harley-Davidson plan. And now we’re getting our most detailed look yet at the upcoming electric two-wheeler designed to be more approachable than Harley’s big hogs.
