Harley-Davidson (NYSE: HOG) wants to prove that they're really serious about making electric powered motorcycles. In the wake from the announcement of the availability of an production e-bike by 2019, Harley announced so it has taken a financial stake in Alta Motors, a compact manufacturer of EVs and factors. Considering that the electric bicycle manufactured by Alta has nothing to do with the Harley-Davidson Project Livewire motorcycle unveiled some three years ago and that claims to inform the electric bike it can be building now, the way the 2 main will intermingle for to form a unified whole is usually a big question mark. Harley carries a problem. He does not sell a lot of his big expensive machines and must develop a lighter and inexpensive bike. Since the main mature customer is aging inside bicycle buying market, they need the latest generation of younger, more urban, and much more feminine drivers. Apparently, a gearless electric motorcycle or maybe clutch - what Harley calls "twist and go" - is the future of the industry. Buying in Alta is sensible in this regard. The bicycle manufacturer has committed to invest $ 25 to DOLLAR 30 million annually in electric vehicle technology, although the amount of this commitment, if any, is unknown in Alta as financial conditions never have been unveiled. However, Alta gives seemingly advanced expertise into Harley's orbit. RedShift MXR is a 50 horsepower electric motocross motorcycle that, according to Alta, can improve the KTM 690 Enduro. He expects the RedShift being sanctioned by the American Motorcycle Association for racing from the 250 motocross category. The technological innovation that underlies the bike is its battery, for which Alta affirms "there is no smaller, more energy-dense battery within the transport", and its 14, 000 rpm engine cooled by Liquid is "one on the most powerful in motorsport. " Alta's investment isn't for Harley's initial production e-bike, although for what comes next, and one of the biggest issues surrounding an electric motorbike is its range.
