Iconic motorbike manufacturer Harley-Davidson has revealed its first electric motorcycle.

The bike will not go on general sale, instead the firm will select customers from the US to ride it and provide feedback.

The bike - dubbed Project LiveWire - will travel down America's Route 66, visiting more than 30 Harley-Davidson dealerships between now and the end of the year.
