- The bikes will be & # 39; light, fast and easy for anyone to ride & # 39; the company says
- They also have pedal support to increase endurance
- It is unclear when they will be released or how much they will cost
If you need more proof that electric bicycles are a real trend, the old motorcycle supplier Harley Davidson has come to close the deal.
At an annual dealer meeting, alternative transportation blog, Electrek, reports that Harley Davidson has unveiled his electric bikes more than a year after his first bullying.
According to Electrek, the company will sell three different models, including two where riders have to step over a middle section and one with a lowered middle section that is easier to assemble.
The electric bicycles from Harley Davidson were officially unveiled this week according to Electrek. Although the models are still prototypes, Harley-Davidson is reportedly planning to market the bikes
& # 39; The first electric pedal bikes from Harley-Davidson are light, fast and easy for anyone to ride & # 39 ;, the company said in a statement.
"Designed to shine in urban environments, this all-new line of eBicycles is just another example of how Harley-Davidson's More Roads initiative is actively working to inspire a new generation of two-wheeled drivers around the world."
Although the models are still prototypes, Harley-Davidson apparently intends to market the bikes, as reported by Electrek.
However, it is unclear about exactly which price tag.

WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE ELECTRIC BICYCLE OF HARLEY-DAVIDSON?
Harley-Davidson confirmed three prototypes of an electric bicycle that will be his very first such vehicle.
The bikes are said to be equipped with pedal assistance & # 39; light, fast and easy for anyone to ride & # 39 ;.
It is unclear when they will be released or how much they will cost, but company literature suggests they are more than just a test.
The bicycles complement a fully-fledged electric motorcycle that is released by the company LiveWire.
As noted by Electrek, e-bikes can range from anywhere between $ 500 for a lower model to as much as $ 10,000.
Although the bicycles are still very much in the pipeline, they reflect a simultaneous effort by the company to make a name for more environmentally friendly modes of transport.
One of the most recent offers from Harley-Davidson is an electric motorcycle that the company calls LiveWire, which is coming soon.
The bike is definitely different from any other motorcycle in the company and offers different riding modes, a connected app to monitor the vehicle's battery and a digital display that shows speed and more.
Harley-Davidson's trip into the world of electric bicycles is coming as a time with a lot of competition from companies such as ride-sharing giants such as Uber and Lyft.
Lyft recently unveiled its line of dockless e-bikes in San Francisco with features such as & # 39; pedal-assist & # 39; to help riders climb hills and allow them to park bicycles without traveling to a dock.
Coincidentally, or perhaps emphatically, where Uber initially starts rolling out its subscription service in San Francisco.
