Harley-Davidson launches powerful, bad-ass…e-bikes?

If you’ve ever dreamt of zooming around on Harley, feeling the wind in your hair and a purring monster between your legs….oh sorry, I got distracted.

Anyway, Harley-Davidson, the company responsible for iconic, bad-ass motorcycles that have no problem deafening those around them, has launched its first e-bike in the Netherlands. ๐Ÿšฒ

That’s right! If you’ve ever wanted to be able to flick your hair and say “Let me get the Harley,” now you can. While people may be confused when whizz up on your elektrische fiets, it is possibly safer, better for the environment, and a hell of a lot cheaper than a motorbike itself.

Available now

The newest two-wheeled members of the Harley family have been launched under the brand Serial 1 and are available in Dutch Harley-Davidson stores.

Three models are available, capable of reaching speeds with pedal assistance of up to 25-kilometres per hour.

Speed demons will have to cross their fingers that the company’s 45-kilometres per hour option will later be released in the Netherlands โ€” but will have to settle for slower models for the time being.

If you want to get your hands on your very own “hog” you no longer have to spend โ‚ฌ16,000 on a motorbike. Instead, the new e-bikes run from โ‚ฌ3499 up to โ‚ฌ4699. ๐Ÿ’ธ

And yes, while the bikes are technically under the brand name Serial 1 (nicknamed after Harley-Davidson’s oldest known motorcycle) the iconic brand logo IS on the e-bike itself.

Sam isnโ€™t great at being Dutch. Originally hailing from Australia, she came to study in the Netherlands without knowing where the country was on a map. She once accidentally ordered the entire ice-cream menu at Smullers. She still canโ€™t jump on the back of a moving bike. But, she remains fascinated by the tiny land of tall people.
