MIAMI (CBSMiami) – It’s about to feel a lot like winter in South Florida.

Harley-Davidson is known for its iconic beefy rumbling motorcycles.  Now, a “whir” replaces the rumble on some of the motor company’s newest bikes.
“Project LiveWire” is Harley-Davidson’s electric motorcycle.  The company has hand-built fifteen electric bikes to take around the country for test rides.  Most recently the fleet was in Annapolis Maryland where a select few got a chance to take one of the electric bikes for a spin.
Rich Oben, who’s been a Harley rider for thirty years, was one of those who eagerly anticipated the test-ride opportunity.  “It’s exciting new technology.  We never really thought we’d have an electric motorcycle from Harley.  I wanted to see what the acceleration was like and all that.”
“LiveWire” goes from zero to sixty miles per hour in less than four seconds.  The first generation motorcycles have a range of fifty miles on three and a half hours of…
