I've tested several electric bikes now and I'm looking forward to the Electric age. A lot. I'd buy a Zero Electric motard right now if I fitted on it.
100% torque and straight line linear power is quite intoxicating (if the motor is big enough).
All that 'it's about the sound' bull disappears when you screw the throttle on. For me anyway.
And FWIW adv rider is the LAST place you should go for opinions on a Harley-Davidson. It's mostly a font of blinkered disinformation from guys in Goretex safari suits whose biggest issue seems to be Harley owner's fashion sense.
But then even on Harley's own pages you read the comments and you'd think that the Livewire is going to completely replace the Fat Boy next year, rather than being an alternative choice.
But the MotorCo has to change. All the rusted on Heritage buyers are starting to get too old to throw their leg over and a new generation has to be found to come in to replace them. I hope the livewire goes gangbusters all on its own.
