Taking a test ride on Harley-Davidson's first electric motorcycle

Harley-Davidson is known for its iconic beefy rumbling motorcycles. Now, a “whir” replaces the rumble on some of the motor company’s newest bikes.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — In November of 2014, a specific group of people was able to enjoy a test ride for Harley-Davidson's Project Livewire in Annapolis, Maryland. 

A fleet of prototypes was being hauled around the country for test rides and feedback as the company was still trying to fine-tune the project and determine if, and when, the electric motorcycles would be produced and sold. 

FOX43's Evan Forrester was one of the lucky riders. He describes the experience as a "blast." 

And he's not alone, the feedback at the time was clearly positive enough that Harley-Davidson began selling the electric bikes at the dealership in 2019. For the original report, watch the attached video above. 

And for today's reflection on that ride, watch the video below:
