In addition to launching an all-electric motorcycle, Harley-Davidson has a series of battery-powered city bicycles in the works.

Over a year ago, Harley-Davidson announced that they had some electric bicycle projects up their sleeve and, until yesterday, the company had only revealed electric micro-transportation model concepts. According to Electrek, H-D used this year's Annual Dealer's Meeting yesterday to officially unveil three model prototypes of their upcoming e-bicycle line.

While two will require riders to step over the top tube, a third does not have the component, making it easier for users to mount the bike. All three appear to have a battery located along the down tube. The cushy tires on all models look to offer riders a relaxed city biking experience. The bikes will all have a digital sound device that will admit the loud, annoying sound of illegally modified Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

The company states that their "first electric pedal-assist bicycles are light, fast, and easy for anyone to ride" in urban environments. Essentially, this is another type of vehicle that Harley-Davidson has created to widen their audience reach in a world where traffic congestion and vehicle emissions are looked down upon by an increasingly environmentally conscious population.

Harley Davidson: Hey, remember when Cannondale went into the motorcycle business? Worked out great for them, right?
