Nothing mild about E-motos.  You should try one.  Make sure that you have a good grip before you open the throttle.

Well, there’s no rumble.  Just a whirr, or just the sound of the tires rolling, the wind, people talking on the sidewalks, birds chirping, it’s a quiet ride.  Look at the speedo and you’re going a whole lot faster than you realized.  It's not for everyone.

I guess it's no surprise me saying this ...yes I own a 6.5 creed as well as others but A I think it looks pretty cool and B considering the power to weight ratio I could easily forsee bikes being full ev much sooner than later.
ouch

It will never be embraced by HD customer base.


This is a good thing for Harley Davidson. Their customer base is getting older & older with more aging out of motorcycles every year. If they don’t find another customer base in addition to their current one, they’ll be in more trouble than they already are.

This.
HD doubled down on the ‘biker’ image that they helped to foster, and it has not carried over much to the younger generation. Now it is made fun of and almost looked down on.
People have gotten hung up on HD being a V twin, but they also did singles and two strokes, but there again, they doubled down on the V twin OHV set up. The were not the first to do a V twin, either.
It will be interesting to see if they survive. I would guess the ‘Fat Cats’ at the top of the heap are having to re evaluate their ‘big pay’ they have been riding since their ‘boon time’.
Indian came in with a clean slate and was able to leverage it with advancements that have been accepted, and have taken a good part of HD’s share of the market.
Too, HD pissed off a large part of their fan base when they stopped supporting/working on the older stuff. Those are the people that kept them afloat during the ‘rough times’, and I am sure some did not forget it.

Well, I’ll probably age out before this S2 Del Mar is readily available.  I should start looking at their $50k mobility scooters.

I thought that is what trikes are, mobility scooters for Hog riders........ that can't hold up their bikes anymore.
I have heard they come with special hidden Depends pockets  :dunno:

Not a Harley guy but am interested in an electric dirt bike.  The only really viable bike was the Alta.  The rest are really pricy and limited by range.  Range is the big wildcard for me.
