Do not worry if you were disappointed that Harley-Davidson’s first e-bikes did not feature the striking vintage model. As Electrek notes, Harley’s Serial 1 brand now plans to sell a very similar retro bike, the MOSH / TRIBUTE, at the end of the fourth quarter (read: December). Order it in advance for $ 5,999, and you get the base of the MOSH / CTY with looks that would look at home in the fifties, including bold white Schwalbe Super Moto-X tires, a leather-colored leather saddle and similar grips.
The functionality remains the same as the more contemporary model, including the Gates carbon belt drive, built-in lighting and TRP hydraulic disc brakes. The removable 529Wh battery is estimated to deliver up to 105 miles, though it can shrink up to 35 miles, depending on your ride mode, bike style and road choices.
You will need to act fast if you want one. Serial 1 makes only 650 MOSH / TRIBUTE units evenly distributed between the US and Europe. However, the Harley brand has promised more e-bikes for special issues in the future, so you do not have to give up if you are late.
