Electric bicycles will be the future of short-distance transportation in the world and it already seems like the future, when not just crowdfunding startups but traditional bike manufacturers are moving forward with Electric powered bikes. One of the oldest bike makers Harley Davidson is also working on a full lineup of battery-powered vehicles, including a motorcycle, several pedal-assist bikes, and a scooter-moped concept.
This week, the company unveiled a prototype of its unnamed future e-bikes at the 2019 EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan. The spokesperson for the company says it’s still “evaluating market opportunities and finalizing design details” before they go into production in 2020.
The company hasn’t revealed any other details of the vehicles but thanks to Electrek we got pictures of those e-bikes coming in the future.
There are three models unveiled: a high-step model, a step-through model, and one that’s in between. The pictures display that the e-bikes have premium colors and heavy specifications that means these bikes are not in the category of easily affordable bikes some dealers suggest these bikes will be priced between $2,500 to $5,000.
These bikes have mid-drive motors and internal removable batteries that can be opened with a key lock that sits flush with the frame and also feature high-end hydraulic disc brakes clamping down on what appears to be massive 203 mm rotors.
Other features included are taillights that are built into the frame of the bike and around the H-D logo on the headset of the bikes is also an LED light, which would function as a headlight in this case.
