It wouldn’t be surprising if the first thing that came up in your mind when someone mentions Harley-Davidson is its selection of motorcycles. In an interesting turn of events, the renown brand has revealed that it will be releasing its first ever electric bicycle, the Serial 1, which is slated for March 2021.
The new bicycle is actually a product from the Serial 1 Cycle Company, a new brand formed under the Harley-Davidson banner. It is helmed by a team of the latter’s alumni including president Jason Huntsman, vice president Ben Lund, and several others. It is believed that the Serial 1 eBicycle itself is the first of many to be manufactured by the company.
Not much of the new e-bike’s details were provided, such as its motors and battery. Preview images and video of the Serial 1 eBicycle reveal it to feature a thin black frame, brown leather seat, a flexible brown chain, white tyres and a light-up logo.
The company claims that the new electric bicycle will allow users to “fide farther, faster, and with less effort.” In addition, it adds that the Serial 1 would be the “perfect solution for urban commuting and recreational riding.”
Pricing and availability of the Serial 1 eBicycle have not been revealed by the company or Harley-Davidson at this time. However, a countdown timer on the Serial 1 website indicates that an official launch for the e-bike is scheduled to take place on 16 November 2020.
