The American motorcycle maker has announced a growth plan describing “the first in a broad, no-clutch ‘twist and go’ portfolio” of electric two-wheelers designed to establish the company in the electrification of motorcycles. Earlier in 2018 Harley-Davidson teamed up with electric motorcycle maker Alta Motors and served notice its first electric motorcycle would come to market in 2019. “We’re going big in EV with a family of products that will range in size, power, as well as price,” COO Michelle Kumbier told Charged Electric Vehicles Magazine. “When you look at EV, you know this is a whole new customer base that we are bringing in.”
