The new motorcycle, which was not named, will carry a roughly 50-mile range and be able to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4 seconds. By comparison, Zero's SR hits 60mph in 3.3 seconds, and the Mission R racer has a top speed of more than 150mph, with a sub-3-second sprint time. A standard Ducati Monster 1200 motorcycle can hit 60mph in just under 3 seconds.

50 mile range? Not thanks.

There are garage tinkerers on youtube making motorcycles with 2-300 mile ranges.

I guess they'll do what TESLA does. Provide an option for a few thousand bucks to double the range.

In the video posted above it seems the bike is silent. But yeah.. I don't see how people will buy a Hog without it's distinctive sound.

Up until I sold my bikes last year, I had lot's of opportunity to see all these 'Harley guys'. There was more talk of diabetes medication and obesity related illnesses than revolution.

I don't know if they'll get their stuff together on it, but Harley is correct for doing this. That old 'easy rider' market is dying off.

Obviously "old" is the key word here.

But I gotta admit I enjoyed the hell out of those "runs" in their hayday when I lived out west. Good times. Great memories.

The a******s who love to race up and down my street won't accept a quiet motorcycle, they need to annoy everyone around them with noise. Their masculinity is, I believe, dependent on it.
