Don’t worry if you’ve been disappointed that Harley-Davidson’s first electric bikes did not include this eye-catching vintage model. As Electrek Remarks, the brand Harley’s Serial 1 plan now sell a very similar retro bike, the MOSH / TRIBUTE, at the “end of the fourth quarter” (read: December). Pre-order it for $ 5,999 and you’ll get the MOSH / CTY basics with a look that would seem comfortable in the 1950s, including big white Schwalbe Super Moto-X tires, a honey-colored leather saddle, and similar grips.
Functionality remains the same as the more contemporary model, including the Gates carbon belt drive, integrated lighting and hydraulic TRP disc brakes. The removable 529Wh battery is estimated to provide up to 105 miles of range, although it can be reduced to 35 miles depending on your riding style, riding style, and route choices.
You’ll have to act quickly if you want one. Series 1 only manufactures 650 MOSH / TRIBUTE units split evenly between the US and Europe. The Harley brand has promised more special edition e-bikes “in the future”, so you don’t have to give up hope if you’re too late.
