It's no secret that legendary motorcycle manufacturers Harley Davidson have been flirting with electric tech as of late; however at a meeting for dealers they may have just revealed their first ever pedal-assist models, and there's a couple of interesting things going on with these prototypes.
The news was originally shared by Electrek, who managed to obtain the details direct from Harley Davidson and get some images - these are in prototype form, so the finished product may look quite different. You'll see a step-through model plus two with an appearance resembling a more standard hybrid, and all look to have mid-motors. A belt drive and hub gears also seem to be visible, and hydraulic disc brakes as you'd expect.
Look a bit closer at the bike on the right and you'll notice that there appears to be only one front brake... like a motorbike, of course!
It seems the bikes are heading for production, with a Harley Davidson source telling Electrek that the images are authentic. The company officially describe them as 'future concepts', saying: "Production model features will vary. Not yet available for sale. All future models shown may not be available in all markets.”
We'll try to get in touch with someone at Harley Davidson to find out more about potential launch dates and what countries they might be available in. What do you reckon, would you ride a Harley Davidson e-bike? let us know in the comments!
