When Harley-Davidson’s founders put power to two wheels and created their first motorcycle in 1903, they changed the way the world moved forever. Now, more than a century later, Serial 1 Cycles, Powered by Harley-Davidson, has created an eBicycle that’s designed to change the way the world moves again.
Inspired by the entrepreneurial vision of Harley-Davidson’s founders—and the revolutionary impact of their oldest-known motorcycle, affectionately referred to as “Serial Number One—Serial 1 Cycles was created for the sole purpose of delivering innovative eBicycles that make every ride an adventure. Combining Harley-Davidson’s world-class product development capability with the agility of a start-up brand, Serial 1 Cycles offers premium eBicycles guided by intelligent, human-centered design and crafted using the most advanced bicycle technology available, to create the easiest and most intuitive way to experience the fun, freedom and instant adventure of riding a pedal-assist electric bicycle.
The lithium-ion battery is integrated into the lower frame for sleek style and convenient removal for off-the-bike charging. It can be charged on the bike through a charging pot conveniently located on the lower frame.
Depending on selected mode and terrain encountered, expect the Serial 1 to travel 25-100 miles on one charge.
Charge time for the battery varies from 4.5 to 6.6 for a full charge, depending on the model.
A bright LED headlamp mounted on the handlebar stem illuminates the path ahead and can make the rider more conspicuous after dark.
Bright combination LED tail brake lights integrated into the frame dropouts are designed to make the bike more visible front the rear.
A distinctive LED front signature light pays homage to the shape of the classic headtube badge on Harley-Davidson's original bicycles and illuminates whenever the eBicycle is powered up.
Gates Carbon Drive belt is smooth, quite and maintenance free. It requires none of the frequent lubrication or adjustment of a chain-drive system. It never gets greasy or messy.
Hydraulic Disc Brakes
Front and rear hydraulic disc brakes utilize 203mm brake rotors designed to deliver confident braking performance in most riding conditions - essential for faster-moving eBicycles and all-weather commuting.
KEGEL KREW DEMO DAY
When Kegel H-D started stocking the Serial 1, the Krew gave them a spin. It was grey and dreary weekday and this eBike was a welcomed interruption to the standard work day.
Maidens of Merch, Motorcycle Sales Associates, Main Office Staff, and Managers threw their leg over various models of the Serial 1, and were taken by surprise. As motorcycle enthusiasts, we didn't expect to be blown away by a bike that went 20 mph, but we were.
Throughout the afternoon, expressions of astonishment and admiration could be heard echoing throughout the dealership.

TAKE A TEST RIDE
We recommend comfortable clothing with closed-toed shoes. Upon signing a waiver, strapping on a helmet, and leaving a license behind to a dealer, you are then welcome to take the bikes out for a 10-15 minute ride. To understand the full functions and features of the bike, we recommend riding in each of the four assist modes (Eco, Tour, Sport, and Boost) as well as taking the bike around the local area to see how it handles, roads, hills, and other common terrains. Feel free to swap out and try different models/sizes to get a full understanding of which eBike best fits your riding needs.
Once a test ride is completed, please return the bike and helmet and make sure to get your license back. Our local Harley-Davidson Serial 1 ambassador and dealership team will then help facilitate the purchase of your favorite model.
