Harley-Davidson’s new Serial 1 electric bikes are coming, and we got one of the first test rides. The bikes are gorgeous, with a clean, non cluttered design and an impressive spec sheet. And they are an absolute joy to ride. But are they worth $5,000?

Blew it. When you deviated from the original design you blew it. Add in the rediculous price. I have a rad rover that will run this over cost 1499

These bikes look like a super high-end german product where they did ALL the design and spared no expense. But it looks GERMAN. It does NOT look like a Harley. There is NO American style. The actual Serial 1 motorbike looks 1000% cooler. And this pricing seems really suspect as a 3k ebike with a $2000 markup because of sticking on a Harley badge. So, feel free to love this as a European Union ebike, but I just can't call it a Harley.

5000 US for bike? as a former BAM I can't but suspect that HD administration is loose in the wild. Getting late in the game and mimicking other companies strats in the same niche just to get the cut for them and whoever they've allied to develop this product is not only lazy but shameful for trying to get that crazy advantage on their brand loyal customers, perhaps the biggest chunk of potential customers in their chart.

This felt scripted and sponsored by Harley to say the exact words. The bicycles aren’t “ unmistakably Harley “ , 5000$ in a time of pandemic where people are strapped for cash. Not a good review. The bicycles themselves look nice for sure but they better be if someone is charging you that amount.

These vehicles are not electric, they’re battery powered. I always ask, if everything is going the way of the battery, how do you plan to charge of of these glorious earth saving devices? Also the big give away about ‘green’ is how much the consumer is charged (get it?) for being so earth friendly... Its fine if YOU want to live this way. But if your ideas are so awesome, Mehta do you have to force the rest of us to do what YOU want? Is it because you all are so smart and just know better???

Number one: yes they ARE electric. A battery generates electricity. Number two: yes electricity/batteries are more earth friendly than carbon emissions. Neither of these should really have to be stated, yet here I am.
