On June 24, Scarlett Johansson's new ride as Black Widow in the upcoming Avengers sequel called "Age of Altron" is making noise even though the special machine does not hardly make noise at all. Indeed, the actress and her stunt double were apparently assigned Harley-Davidson's new model called Project LiveWire, according to United Press International (UPI) on Tuesday.
Ing revealed the existence of leaked footage from The Avengers franchise's sequel showing Scarlet Johansson's stunt double performing on Project LiveWire while in South Korea in early April. In fact, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow showcased the black bike in its prototype form on Seoul's busy streets.
Meanwhile, Harley-Davidson let a gaggle of riders try Project LiveWire, the first electric Harley-Davidson motorcycle, on a joy ride across New York City's legendary Manhattan Bridge on June 23 to test out the goods.
The legendary motorcycle company allowed members of the Harley Owner's Group New York Chapter a chance to get the feel of their product in exchange for feedback on the machine that is able to reach 92 miles per hour and that takes about three and a half hours to fully charge.
The Verge states that LiveWire is a far cry from the sort of motorcycle that Harley-Davidson devotees typically are attracted to since this fresh electric bike only "has a single gear, a touchscreen dashboard, and no gas to speak of."
But Harley marketing honcho Mark-Hans Richer talks about the reality of the situation. He asserts that the new bike is Harley's response to a new generation of riders, those who are geared toward electric vehicles that can still be rewarded with a bike that's "agile" and "sport" and "nimble."
Matt Levatich, President and Chief Operating Officer for Harley-Davidson Motor Company states, "Project LiveWire is just one element in our efforts to preserve and renew the freedom to ride for generations to come."
He added, "As a company that has seen success for 111 years, we think in generational terms about our great riding environments for the next 111 years."
That claimed, the company behind the first-ever electric motorcycle to carry the Harley-Davidson name and called Project LiveWire is not yet set for production. Meanwhile, actress Scarlett Johansson will allegedly be riding this special machine on the big screen in "Avengers: Age of Ultron" when the movie opens wide starting May 1, 2015.
