Let's hope they don't go out of business first.
Harley-Davidson will close its Kansas City, Missouri plant as part of a cost-cutting move as it continues to face dwindling shipments.

The Milwaukee company reported a 7.9 percent drop to 241,498 motorcycle shipments in 2017 and expects the figure to continue dropping. It forecast 231,000 to 236,000 motorcycle shipments in 2018.

Harley-Davidson's stock ended 8 percent lower Tuesday

Millennial's probably couldn't tell a Harley from a hand rail. Going electric is something a millennial might understand. I say maybe, because without a phone they are so inept! :lol: :lol:

Hehe... Maybe "over the top" aka a "dying breath" where more than half of the world is now "urban" featuring "short" distances at "slow" speeds. :wink:

Didn't they already do this four years ago?

I'll believe it when it actually happens.

I read about this bike - sounds light-years ahead of their gasoline machines. I wonder if this has anything to do with the plant closing in my neck of the woods...

Hehe... Wiki: "Tacita is a genus of sea snails, marine gastropod mollusks in the family Buccinidae, the true whelks."

... when really it's Mandarin Chinese dialect for "Harley". :lol:

Yes. Here a video from August 2014:

that was the product introduction to the public in which Harley sent their prototype electric motorcycle on a marketing tour of the US to promote and gauge public interest..

but now Harley has announced that the bike is scheduled for serial production and entry into the market for actual sale to the public and availability at dealerships..
