    Said this before and I’ll say it again. Why would you drop that much $ on an ebike with no dual suspension, no throttle, and likely goes no faster than your average ebike. You’re paying for a name.

    Won’t catch any young people on these when they have such better options on the market. Literally the ebike market is pretty segmented at this point on what you are looking for, high end mountain ebike, trek for instance. Cool bikes that appeal to the “influencer” kinda style super 73 is all over that. With Harley Davidson’s typically high prices for their whole line, and the Live wire as the most expensive the last time I checked, the only market that will give a shit about these are old Harley riders that can’t ride their motorcycle anymore.

    The prices have been released. There are 4 models ranging from $3400 to $5000. I assume there will be various options significantly raising those numbers. Maybe a big king/queen seat , a sissy bar, highway pegs, and tall ape hanger bars?

    People in the comments forget what HD is. They're toys. They are not the fastest, neither convenient, fuel efficient... They're just nice for those who like it either for its aesthetics or its history. Same reason why we build houses in a way we like at the expense of heat efficiency, space light, etc.
    Not everything has to be the best to be liked.

    Curious to know if there is a reason the front sprocket is not smooth and round, with a recessed belt track...after all, there is no derailleur requiring the belt to slide on or off.
    Why make the front gear jagged and mildly dangerous when it could be perfectly safe?

    looks nothing like the original apart apart from the colour. now if it did look like the original that would make it salable , as it is it just looks like its been designed by a blind leftie, more "BORN TOO BE MILD" absolutely nothing exciting about these . and also as its a Harley they will make the seat and handle bars an optional extra .

    After reading some comments it's pretty obvious Harley has some image issues. They make overpriced lumber wagons and they are running out of rich old guys to buy them. TIME FOR REDEMPTION with a very cool and hip electric. That XR750 looking concept is incredible, I want one, assuming it's light and affordable. Instead they go with the Tron sport bike that no one can relate to, has zero ties to their heritage and cost 30k. Hmmm, how fast can we bankrupt the company must be the goal. Please let me run the company I know I can't do worse.

    As an owner of an electric mountain bike, I can totally see why manufacturers want a piece of the pie. Emissions aside, gasoline powered motorcycles are better in every measurable way, be it cost, power, acceleration, weight, range, or time to refill.
    Electric cycles, on the other hand can still be legally bicycles, and that opens up a lot of places for motorized fun that were previously much harder to access without motor assistance.
    Despite the high prices of an electric mountain bike (comparable to a dirtbike), me, and avid motorcyclist chose one over a dirt bike because all the mtb trails in my neighborhood became way more accessible. I would have to haul a dirt bike quite far to get access to any motor vehicle off road trails.
