Peter Fonda is probably best known for his cult movie, Easy Rider. He’s become one of the most iconic faces within the motorcycle industry since that role. Fonda continues to ride to this day on a MV Agusta F4 superbike that just screams.

With the launch and tour of LiveWire though, Harley-Davidson invited Fonda, 74, to come out and try the new concept. We’re guessing to possibly turn him and his icon status on to the electric concept.

And from the video in this recent Los Angeles Times story, which you can see here, it looks like he likes it.

“This is a gas! This is essential!” Fonda says while riding an electric Harley-Davidson LiveWire prototype in the video.

What are your thoughts on the bike? And if a guy like Fonda, who’s been riding forever loves it, will that get more people turned onto the bike?
