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.
