Harley-Davidson will launch an all-electric motorcycle | Daily

  • By cannonball

Harley-Davidson has confirmed plans to launch its first electric motorbike next year.

The US brand, famed for its thunderous gas-guzzling choppers, has revealed the launch date of its long-anticipated electric bike, known as LiveWire.

The electric motorbike will launch in 2019 — some four years after a prototype for the vehicle was driven by Scarlett Johansson’s character Back Widow in the 2015 Marvel blockbuster The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Details of the performance and price of the electric bike have yet to be released.

The announcement comes as part of a new business model for the Milwaukee-based company, which is looking to engage with a wider range of customers as demand dwindles for its iconic petrol-hungry bikes.

There aren’t many bikes that you can call genuine iconic but the Honda Monkey is certainly one of them.

Fans of the monkey have come from far and wide in society, including both Michael Jackson and John Lennon, and now it’s been re-imagined for a whole new generation.

Is the new #HondaMonkey as good as the old or better?

EWC: Sepang to host 8-hour race from 2019 | MCN

The Endurance World Championship will be heading to Malaysia, with the news today that the Sepang International Circuit will be joining the 2019-2020 calendar with a planned eight-hour race in December 2019.

Making the announcement at the Suzuka 8 Hour race, the race will become the qualifying round for endurance racing’s most prestigious race, in a move that is likely to bring the full-factory teams and bikes normally reserved for the Japanese race into action not once but twice a year.

Harley-Davidson turns motorcycling on its head 

  • By cannonball

In the biggest shake up in recent memory, Harley-Davidson have thrown caution to the wind and unveiled a radical new range of motorcycles that will change the course of the brand for years to come. Aimed squarely at attracting a new, younger audience both to the brand and to motorcycling in general, their new range of middleweights and electric bikes will take the old bar and shield until totally new territories. At the same time, they’re also modernising and improving their core Tourer and Cruiser offering with brand new electronics and improved connectivity, changing the way their dealers operate and even exploring direct to consumer online sales. Strap in folks, this is going to be a wild ride.

Interesting move from Harley Davidson…
