Harley-Davidson goes electric


Harley-Davidson (HOG) announces it has developed its first electric motorcycle.

Though the bike isn't for sale yet in the U.S., the company is starting to promote it nationally.

Harley-Davidson says the electric Hog features "tire-shedding" acceleration and an unique sound. "Think fighter jet on an aircraft carrier," says marketing exec Mark-Hans Richer.

    I'm sure the rolling blubber contingent is wondering how they're going to re-create that look-at-me attention getting .enis envy noise most hoggies lust for. Should have several kw/h of juice for amps to the speakers/thumpers to create the VR these guys live in. Maybe just white noise - more soma, please. Musk is probably wtf'ing - a jet sound? Maybe a woofer under the seat.

    Yeah, they can pull the guts out of those mufflers and it won't make a difference. About time!
