    There will be an oil reservoir so you will still get the traditional leaks, even though it is an electric.

    Harley-Davidson has been selling motorcycles for well over a century and enjoys some of the most active and brand-loyal owners in virtually any industry. Though it does offer the more-modern VSRC and Street model lines, the company essentially lives on its rich heritage, offering updated versions of classic designs that date back as far the 1940’s with bad-boy names like Road King, Super Glide, and, of course, Bad Boy.

    To its credit the Milwaukee-based company is hedging its bets that its core customers – men age 35 and older – will not live forever. To that end it just announced it would be sending a dramatic new all-electric motorcycle on a 30-city cross-country tour this summer to gauge market interest, especially among younger enthusiasts.

    Code-named Project LiveWire, the hand-built prototype – which will officially be revealed in New York on June 23 – is styled like no other Harley on the road, looking more like a sleek and low-slung racer than the big highway cruisers typically associated with the brand........

    If you ride an electric motorcycle you're pretty much a faggot.
