The American company Harley-Davidson informed about the plans for the launch of the electric motorcycle. The company has demonstrated the prototype of the Project Livewire electric motorcycle in 2014, but has never publicly voiced the idea of bringing the product to market. Thus, the novelty will be released in the next 18 months.
According to CNN, 2017 has been a difficult year for Harley-Davidson, as global sales of motorcycles have dropped by 6.7% and in the US by 8.5%, so the company is planning to capture it. The electric motorcycle market is new, but is considered promising.
