The new Harley-Davidson motorcycle might be electric, yet this sow can still squeal.

“As a bike flies by, it sounds like a jet fighter,” Jeff Richlen, arch operative of new products during Harley-Davidson, told ABC News.

Harley-Davidson currently introduced a motorcycle, called Project LiveWire, however it won’t be launched as a prolongation model. Instead, a association skeleton to take dozens of a bikes around a universe over a subsequent dual years.

Richlen pronounced a vigilant is to appeal patron feedback as a association seeks to rise new record and standards for electric vehicles that will pleasure all riders, including Harley-Davidson purists.

A bike that Richlen calls “nimble, flexible and light,” sounds like a discord of Harley-Davidson’s brand, he pronounced it will win fans after they take it for a exam drive.

“This is a form of car that is a diversion changer,” Richlen said. “A normal supplement won’t upset it, yet it is such an extraordinary experience. It’s only fun.”

The sound that Harley-Davidson riders get from their bikes was something Richlen didn’t wish to sacrifice.

The longitudinally mounted engine that runs tip to tail is quiet, however a meshing of a gears on a bike is what creates a sound that sounds like a jet or a turbine, Richlen said.

Shifting gears isn’t required on a LiveWire, that can go from 0 to 60 mph in about 4 seconds.

“Harley purists are going to adore it,” Richlen said. “You get off a bike and only wish to float again.”

This sow isn’t utterly prepared for a cross-country trip, though. The batteries contingency be recharged after approximately 130 miles. The routine can take anywhere from 30 mins to an hour, according to a Associated Press.

The LiveWire will make a initial stop in New York City subsequent week before stability on a 30 city U.S. tour. European markets are scheduled to get their initial glance of a bike in 2015.
