Steve Menneto, President of Motorcycles at Polaris, told Reuters he wants to attract new riders with ‘fun’ electric motorcycles. The company will also expand the current model range with smaller capacity models.
“The characteristics of the powertrain are going to be more applicable to be able to ride a bike in pleasure and twisties, and kind of how you would use pleasure bikes today,” said Menneto.
He also declined to comment on the estimated price of the bike, but the Victory Empulse is priced at $19,999.
