Harley-Davidson CEO Jochen Zeitz announced that the motorcycle manufacturer plans to move away from its large displacement internal combustion engines and convert to all-electric motorcycles.

However, Zeitz said that the transition would take decades and that he does not anticipate Harley deserting gasoline in the near future. Harley, which was founded 120 years ago in Milwaukee, will make efforts to broaden its customer base as the company moves to 100% electric. Zeitz said this would include focusing on the brand's apparel and accessories.

Harley launched its first electric motorcycle, the LiveWire One, in 2018. The bike provides 146 miles of city range, 95 miles of combined stop-and-go and highway range, and has a starting price of $29,799. The company will look to expand LiveWire with the S2 Del Mar. Harley said the S2 Del Mar will be designed for urban riding, possess an expected city range of 110 miles, and offer 184 foot-pounds of torque.

At least on CNBC - https://www.thedrive.com/news/jay-lenos-garage-canceled-on-cnbc-after-7-seasons-and-88-episodes-report

Also anybody else heard about the Indian attack on Jay? Found it - https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/jay-leno-suffers-broken-bones-motorcycle-accident-garage-fire-rcna67797

Jay Lenoís Garage is ending its primetime run on CNBC after seven seasons on the channel and 88 episodes. The series began in 2015 after Leno left The Tonight Show and CNBC picked up the popular web series to air on its channel. Jay Lenoís Garage featured the talk show host and his sizable car collection, and he often interviews guests about their cars.

CNBC confirmed the seriesí cancellation but didnít say if it would apply to the YouTube channel and series that Leno also hosts. In November, Leno was badly burned working in his garage and was admitted to a nearby hospital. He emerged after about a week with some burns but largely made a full recovery. Leno told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he was also injured in a motorcycle crash riding a 1940 Indian motorcycle on Jan. 17 where he broke his collarbone, two ribs, and both kneecaps.

Ford reports its venture into electric vehicles is a disaster
Value of investment down from $17.5 billion to $3.2 billion

They put a lot of blame on Rivan - While an announcement was never made, Ford executive Alexandra Ford English left the Rivian board in May according to documents Rivian made public on Oct. 1 ahead of its planned initial public offering.

Where did fashion marketing educated Alexandra (great grand daughter of Henry) go? Why to the Ford board of directors where she can cause more failure. Somehow I don't think her NYC lifestyle will be happy in Dearborn.

Yep - it's back. Henry said it will be built but not much info yet. Rumors are more of a 4 door car look on the Maverick platform. Roomier and nicer interior. I suspect all electric as competition for the compact EV PU GM is working on.
