Harley-Davidson brought two electric concepts to the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show that were rather uncharacteristic of the brand. Rather than big, shiny, noisy cruisers, one is an electric bicycle and the other is a scooter thing. To prove that these bikes are good for more than just urban commuting, Harley-Davidson brought both unnamed concepts to the X Games in Aspen, Colorado to show them off.

In this first video, we see X Games host and long-time snowboarding pro Jack Mitrani ride the electric scooter concept around the snowy streets of Aspen. Mitrani is impressed with the responsive torque, smoothness, and lightness of this little thing.

Harley - Davidson Sees Double-Digit Sales Slump in America During Q4 2018: Watch the Two New Electric Perhaps these scrappy concepts are closer to production than we thought. American icon Harley - Davidson has been making a lot of headlines lately and they aren’t always good ones.

During the next clip, four-time X Games gold medalist Jacko Strong asks something a little more demanding of the H-D electric mountain bike. Instead of sticking to the pavement, the Australian rides it on some heavily dusted trails and hills around the Colorado countryside, and it looks like it does quite well. Like Mitrani, Strong was impressed with the bike’s immediate twist.

We can clearly see in both videos that these are still very much pre-production models, meaning we shouldn’t get our hopes up for bikes like these to be in Harley-Davidson dealers soon. That said, they both could be on their way to production as part of the More Roads to Harley-Davidson plan. The Milwaukee brand wants to cast a wider net and attract a plethora of new riders, and perhaps electric bikes like these could achieve that.

Harley-Davidson is targeting the “next generation of riders” with electric bikes for kids.
Harley is buying StaCyc, a company that makes electric bikes for kids. If that seems off-brand, it's because Harley is trying to expand its brand. The company has struggled to attract customers for its gas-guzzling “hogs” beyond Baby Boomer diehards, while also suffering from tariffs imposed by the EU in retaliation for duties introduced by the Trump administration. Harley expects to ship as few as 217,000 motorcycles in 2019, which would be the lowest total in eight years. It shipped 229,000 worldwide last year.
