HD will make money off their name (I hear they make more by licensing their name than selling MC’s.)I think it’s the auto-park switch. Man I’m old, an electric motorcycle, anyone up for a game of TRON? Just kidding I wouldn’t know how to. Anyway HD will make money on them and further the sport.
There is money to be made if someone just comes up with a external filter to replace the air-box one. With all the other 'accessory' **** that people come up with, this could be a real winner.I'd just like a GW with an easier to change air filter. Which brings to mind a question. Do electric motorcycles have air filters? :shrug:
Agree totally, but it got us talking about it. That’s the HD way.HD will make money off their name (I hear they make more by licensing their name than selling MC’s.)
Zero motorcycles out in California has been profitable selling electric bikes for something like 12 years. I test rode one in 2012. Once I was out of sight of the dealer I stopped at a stop sign, clicked it down into sport mode, and cranked the throttle hard. The bike almost tore itself out from under me. 100% torque at any RPM is something that deserves respect. It sells for around half of what an electric HD costs. If I win the lotto it is definitely going to be my second bike.
IMO, I don't think HD is going to have problems with leaky batteries.Wanna take bets on Harley's batteries leaking ???
I was joking about Harley's batteries leaking. I'm sure they won't.IMO, I don't think HD is going to have problems with leaky batteries.
The Livewire problem appears to be with the AC charging system. Livewires can be charged via AC or DC fast charge. HD has not issued a "stop ride" on the bikes. They have advised Livewire owners not to charge the bike using the AC charging system until they get the "problem" sorted out.
The Level 3 DC fast charge station charges the battery to 80% in 40 minutes. This charging station is available at dealers. (Not all HD dealers have them)
The Level 1 charging system is 110V AC which is an overnight charge which typically would be done in the owners garage via a 110V outlet.
