    Harley-Davidson Harley Anounces New Electric Cruiser "Juice" (petrol free biking)


    The Associated Press
    By U.T. O
    April 13, 2009


    In an effort to bolster H-D's sales Keith E. Wandell has announced a new addition to Harley. Harley is facing a challenging time. I feel it's time to market to a new breed of rider. We are looking to attract the eco-friendly riders of tomorrow. There are a lot of opportunities in the sport bike segment. I have directed our R & D department to focus on the desires of this younger generation. Wandell also stated by 2012 Harley will have a whole new look. Our customer base is full of dinosaurs and we must make the necessary changes to survive. "Juice" is just the first step of many changes.

    Does this Juice have any sub-woofers attached to hollow pipes to produce that exhaust beat?

    I guess it won't sell otherwise

    Unhappy

    As a purist, I do find this disgusting.

    But more than disgusting, it is a sad reality.

    Already hybrid and electronic cars have a substantial market in USA and elsewhere in developed countries.


    I guess unless some benevolent alien race gives us a special technology or intergallactic petrol pipeline - THIS IS EVERYONE's FUTURE !


    Well, at least they could have given a retro look instead of this toy Tobu cycle.

    Hi,

    In the past Harley Davidson has also made a scooter - The Harley Topper
    (See its Advertisement in Motorcycle Advertisement thread)


    And you wouldn't believe it they have made
    Golf Carts as well.

    ^ I guess this is the more important news ... considering the fact that Harleys have enough controversies around them too ... Chalti Firti Vivaadit company, just like I was earlier ...

    Not that it's bad. It's good, just a bit controversial...

    BTW I wonder if HD makes an entry into "sport bike" segment, What will happen to Buell? Are these 2 companies separated now?

    Just wondering, what kind of feeling will it give? Lookswise its not that bad to my eyes but maybe the lack of that grunting sound and ofcourse the potato beat might be missed sorely by one and all.
