Electric Harley-Davidson Revival Concept Aims to Appeal to Younger Generations

Priced at $30,000, the LiveWire, which was seen as a method of fixing Harley’s generational woes, is solely too expensive for the youthful generations. That, mixed with the truth that the Harley picture continues to be related to the dangerous boy biker picture, and the notion that each one its bikes are massive, loud and costly, has contributed to what one designer calls an accessibility downside.

In brief, millennials and Gen Zers gained’t contact a Harley with a ten-foot pole, even when they might afford it.

Industrial designer Tanner Van De Veer and DAAPworks got down to ship a motorbike that would in all probability remedy Harley’s issues on this regard. The idea is known as the Harley-Davidson Revival and is seen as an all-electric, minimalist and futurist creation that takes inspiration from the early Harley designs to ship a motorbike that even children would journey.

As per the undertaking’s description, Revival is minimalist and useful, however nonetheless muscular and iconic-looking. On paper no less than, it could even be cheaper, although it could nonetheless use premium supplies.

With a low middle of gravity however greater journey top, it stands out with options like adjustable footpegs, actual leather-based handlebars and different leather-based accents, a minimalist instrument cluster, and modern LED lights. It’s smaller and extra compact than present Harley choices. To avoid wasting time and lower down prices, as an alternative of a chargeable battery, it could include a hot-swappable battery pack.

On the similar time, whereas closely modified, Revival can be an immediately recognizable Harley, the designer says. Other than the body, the headlight is supposed to resemble the Harley-Davidson brand, which, Van De Veer theorizes, would make the bike immediately recognizable “a mile away.”
