That is it. Harley-Davidson has been teasing us with the prospect of their very own in-house electrical bicycles for over two years. And as we speak the bar-and-shield motorbike producer has lastly introduced its new devoted electrical bicycle model often known as Serial 1 Cycle Firm.

The model’s identify is an homage to the very first motorbike ever constructed by Harley-Davidson in 1903, named “Serial Quantity One.”

Again then, bikes had been primarily simply bicycles with a small engine positioned in entrance of the pedals.

And so it’s becoming that the corporate’s first electrical bicycle is a nod to that very first H-D motorbike. Try each within the video beneath to see how properly they nailed the tribute.

As Serial 1 Cycle Company’s model director Aaron Frank defined in an announcement supplied to Electrek:

When Harley-Davidson first put energy to 2 wheels in 1903, it modified how the world moved, ceaselessly. Impressed by the entrepreneurial imaginative and prescient of Harley-Davidson’s founders, we hope to as soon as once more change how cyclists and the cycling-curious transfer round their world with a Serial 1 eBicycle.

The brand new e-bike model from H-D truly started life as a skunkworks project in Harley-Davidson’s Product Development Center.

As the corporate defined, they started with “a small group of passionate motorbike and bicycle fanatics working with a single focus to design and develop an eBicycle worthy of the Harley-Davidson identify.”

In the end, they determined together with H-D to spin off the model right into a devoted electrical bicycle firm that would focus purely on delivering a premium e-bike product and expertise.

Along with Aaron Frank, different main gamers from H-D’s in-house e-bike program that made the bounce to Serial 1 Cycle Firm embody Jason Huntsman, president; Ben Lund, vice chairman; and Hannah Altenburg, lead model advertising and marketing specialist.

Serial 1 will formally debut its first electrical bicycle fashions for customers in March 2021. For now, the corporate is exhibiting off its first prototype mannequin, which the model describes as “a styling train, not essentially supposed for mass manufacturing.”

This prototype has been styled after that unique 1903 Serial Quantity One motorbike from Harley-Davidson. However curiously, we are able to see that it shares the identical body as one of the original three electric bicycle prototypes that I spied last year at the 2019 EICMA Milan Motorcycle Show.

That signifies that whereas this particular styling doubtless received’t see showroom flooring, the bike it’s primarily based on very properly could also be right here this spring.
