ABQ motorcyclists get chance to see electric bike

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – On Sunday, the buzz was about the electric-powered motorcycles parked along the curb at the Harley-Davidson dealership on Alameda.

Harley-Davidson stopped in Albuquerque to show off Project Livewire, its the company’s first-ever electric bike. They’re on tour so people get a chance to see the motorcycle up close.

The company says the bike won’t replace their gas bikes, but they want to give customers options.

“The idea behind Harley is about being free, and there’s lots of ways of being free, and expressing your individuality. That’s what it’s really all about,” said chief marketing officer Mark-Hans Richer.

Right now the bike is just a prototype. Harley-Davidson hasn’t said when the bike will go on sale or how much it will cost.
