Call it a ride on the mild side. Harley will be debuting prototype electric motorcycles next week.
The handmade demonstration models are to be unveiled Monday in New York. The so-called LiveWire won't have the in-your-face roar of a gas powered Harley. It's more like the whine of jet turbine. While the electric motor is silent, the hum comes from the gears. Harley promises the electric bike won't compromise on performance.
