The motorcyle world is buzzing about Harley-Davidson’s plans for an electric bike, Project LiveWire, which has been three years in the making.

According to reports here and here, the 74-horsepower engine has some pep and it weighs just 50 pounds.

But it only has a range of 53 miles on a charge, so it is only ideal for short city commutes. It takes 3.5 hours to recharge it when the battery is drained.

But in a world where “loud pipes save lives,” the quieter electric Harley has some motorcyclists shaking their heads.

Harley-Davidson is hitting the road with its electric bike to talk with bike lovers.

What do you think of an electric Harley?  Would you ride one?  It sounds like a great concept, but personally, I don’t know if I could ride a bike that was essentially silent.  We sneak up on cars as it is – this bike would give no warning to cars of its p0resence whatsoever.

Tell me what you think below!

Thanks for reading.
