Motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson just announced a spinoff bicycle brand, Serial 1 Cycle Company.
When you think of Harley-Davidson, you probably think of leather jackets, shiny chrome components, and that iconic V-twin engine and throaty roar. But now, Harley is shifting gears to bring a completely different type of bike to market. An e-bicycle.
“Harley-Davidson first put power into two wheels in 1903. Inspired by the pioneering spirit of the brand’s founders, Serial 1 has created an e-bike that’s designed to change how the world moves,” the announcement video teases.
The “Serial 1” name is an homage to the very first model Harley-Davidson built, called “Serial Number One.” Serial 1 Cycles’ first e-bike will be a pedal-assist electric model.
The e-bike will have the battery integrated into the frame, as well as details like LED front and rear lights and a leather saddle.
As the brand hasn’t published specifics, all we know is that it will definitely reflect the style and design of the traditional Harley-Davidson.
Serial 1 will release info on its first e-bike in a little under 3 weeks. The first models should ship in March 2021.
