H-D have previewed two electric concepts created for the younger generation. These concepts are now being put to the test at the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado.
The two concepts are built from lightweight materials and use an electric powertrain to get going. The battery pack has been designed in such a way as to allow to be removed and carried inside, to be plugged into any standard household power outlet. The first looks like of a cross between a motocross bike and a mountain bike. It does not feature peddles and relies solely on electricity to power the rear wheel. The second is an electric scooter concept that looks to target urban mobility.
