Wider bars and off road tyres? Looks alright.:thumbsup2:

It'd be grand for tipping around in a city. Good idea to make the battery easily removable so you can lock up the bike, and take the battery inside to charge up.

I'd sooner have a shot on their electric mountainbike though

That actually looks pretty sweet.

Range/recharge times will make it or break it.

And of course, if they want 10k for it they won't sell any.

Gixxer you just don't know a brilliant design when you see it.

Look at all that extra space in the frame for modifications and Harley Davidson accessories that as you know are extremely affordable. Just imagine the possibilities for genuine HD handlebars or seats that will allow proud owners to make their scooters 'unique'.

And by using an absolutely horrible colour the first thing that any self respecting Harley Davidson owner will do is is opt for a custom paint job.

the scooter will still be shite, still be a complete waste of money, but totally in keeping with Harley Davidson design philosophy and tradition

But that orange is used in the HD logo. It's also the same as the KTM orange :lbhbh:

It looks like one of those kids' rides you put a Euro into outside shops.

Look at the size of the front disc....then the caliper....it’s only grabbing about 5mm on the disc:lbhbh::lbhbh:

Are the other models like High Power hybrids? Looks like a lot of metal for a battery to move for any length of time.

It looks like an April fool joke to me but apparently it isnt.
Where's the compartment for locking your helmet in, don't most scooters have those?
Knowing Harley, It's probably a 3 grand optional extra.

What’s this ? 1993 ? Sure you wouldn’t get 4 seconds on one of them for a Euro....:lbhbh:

Is a basket for the handlebars available as an aftermarket branded accessory?

I did. Scary stuff and horrid fast😁. The lack of an engine roar as you accelerate, no gear changes, and the anti wheelie and traction control make it very easy to ride fast... even without realising it. Very comfortable and seems to handle very well with great brakes. While it's heavy it didn't feel heavy. No way did I think I would like it and yet I loved it.

any electric bike not making any noise is a recipe for disaster.
