With an eye toward expanding its portfolio into electric motorcycles, The Motor Company sets out for the California Republic
It’s been a pretty busy month or so for Harley-Davidson. First the company dropped a bomb on the motoring world with the announcement of new, decidedly non-Harley products like the Pan American, the Streetfighter, and the LiveWire. Then there was the 115th anniversary party, the new CVO bikes, plans for storefront-based brand outreach, the unveiling of the bonkers FXDR 114—all kinds of crazy stuff. Now, not content to rest on its laurels, the Motor Company just dropped some electrifying news on us about a new research and development facility in NorCal.
What’s this all about, then? Well, in the Big Announcement with the Pan America and all that, Harley also announced that the LiveWire would be the anchor for a whole product line of electric motorcycles bearing the orange and black livery. Thing is, building small, agile electric dirt bikes and runabouts is way different than building a big bike like the LiveWire, let alone 45-degree V-twins in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. That’s why Harley has bowed to fate and announced the opening of a new high-tech research and development center out in Silicon Valley. Would you like to know more? Of course you would.
