Electric vehicles could be the future we are entering into, which is why so many car manufacturers are going down this route. Now it appears popular motorbike maker, Harley-Davidson, is making moves to bring motorbikes into the future with its first electric motorbike.

The company released a teaser video of the vehicle, and although it is an electric motorcycle; it will squeal down the highway as expected.

The new motorcycle is called Project LiveWire, however, it won't be launched for the public as a production model. Instead, Harley-Davidson plans to bring several of these motorcycles across the world in the next 2 years. This idea is to get customer feedback on what they think about the new technology Harley-Davidson is working on.

"As the bike flies by, it sounds like a jet fighter," Jeff Richlen, chief engineer of new products at Harley-Davidson, told ABC News.

Richlen also calls this bike "nimble, agile and light," which is good enough proof that it is an electric motorcycle. He also said the company has no intention to sacrifice the noise Harley-Davidson lovers have come to expect over the years.

We also understand that the motor on the bike is quiet, and the sound comes from the meshing of the gears. However, Richlen says riders can go about their business without shifting a gear, and that the new bike is capable of going from 0-60 miles per hour in just four seconds.

Matt Levatich, President and Chief Operating Officer, Harley-Davidson Motor Company, said Harley-Davidson has reinvented itself many times in the past, and this Project LiveWire initiative is just another one of those reinventions.

Project LiveWire, in its current form is not yet ready for bringing users cross-country on a single charge. A recharge is required after 130 miles, and it can take up to 30 minutes to get the battery up and running for another ride.
