A much quieter Harley Davidson zooming down a section of Route 66 sported a trademark bar and shield logo attached to the clip. It did not sound like rolling thunder but rather like a jet engine as it zoomed past cameras alerting further suspicions of an upcoming electric model.

A supposed electric Harley Davidson was also spotted on the sets of Avengers: Age of Ultron in South Korea where it was being ridden by a stunt double for Scarlett Johansson, giving rise to further anticipation that this will be the first electric bike to be produced by Harley Davidson. The bike was noted to have amber coloured side reflectors on front forks besides red colored side reflectors on guard rails which are accessories mandatory in countries like the USA.
