Harley-Davidson sells its first-ever electric mountain bike


Have you ever said to yourself, “man, I would give so much to be able to ride a real electric mountain bike powered by wonderful Harley-Davidson electronics and technology”? Nope? Neither do I…

Well, it doesn’t matter anymore whether or not you had that thought, because now you can donate around $4,500 for just that!

That’s right, Harley-Davidson recently abandoned the Series 1/MTN Switchtheir first full front suspension e-MTB, featuring an SR Suntour suspension fork, TranzX dropper post, SRAM SX Eagle 1×12 drivetrain and Michelin all-terrain tires.

With just engine power, this bad boy can reach up to 20 mph, hitting higher speeds with the help of the pedals. And, with its large battery, it can travel 30 to 95 miles before it dies.

So why should you buy this dope bike? I have no idea, I’m not a fan of electric mountain bikes.

If you want a bike that can get you up hills with little effort so you can enjoy cruising downhill, I’m not sure if this would be the best option since it only has front suspension ( I’ve tried going downhill with a hardtail, it’s really not that much fun) (plus, I’m not good at mountain biking, so my opinion probably shouldn’t matter to you that much) .

If you want a cross country mountain bike you probably shouldn’t buy one with a motor because that kind defeats the purpose of cross country mountain biking, and if you just want an e-bike to help you get around, I get a feeling that might be a bit too beefy.

But I guess if you’re a big Harley-Davidson fan and you’re a big ATV fan, this might be the option for you! I don’t know how many people out there who love these two things so much that they would buy a combination of them…

That being said, I’m waiting for a video of a squid going to a Harley-Davidson meet on one of those electric mountain bikes, only to walk off out of sheer embarrassment or get the boot by a looking Harley gruff boys.

Also, the bike ad below might be one of the funniest mountain bike ads I’ve ever seen, and I have to imagine the humor is in no way intentional…
