Watch New Harley Concept Electric Bike In Action

• https://insideevs.com, BY RIDEAPART.COM

Australian Jackson "Jacko" strong, X-Games motocross medalist is no stranger to dirtbikes, and takes the new Harley on a quick spin while in Aspen for the 2019 games.

The bike, sporting what seem to be studded knobby bicycle tires, looks as at home in the snow as the rider.Shenanigans ensue, as you'd expect of a young guy who does this sort of thing for a living, and who has been handed someone else's bike to ride.

While it's a Harley-branded (and funded) commercial at its root, in the video Strong seems genuinely impressed with the bike's handling, weight, instant torque availability and the lack of a clutch. He seemed to have a ton of fun with it.

The noise the bike makes is remarkable in its own right: not a combustion engine but the howl of an electric motor. This makes for an interesting dichotomy, especially when paired with the introductory blast in the video showing the bar-and-shield Harley logo coupled with "ELECTRIC IS THE FUTURE."
