Harley-Davidson’s e-bike spinoff, Serial 1, has unveiled a limited-edition premium model designed for off-roading.

The BASH/MTN is the company’s first electric mountain bike that features a fully rigid aluminum frame and fork, with “no fussy suspension to tune, no finicky drivetrain to adjust,” says Serial 1. The only shock absorption comes from the SR Suntour NCX suspension seat post.

The e-mountain bike is equipped with grippy, high-volume Michelin E-Wild knobby tires and four-piston TRP hydraulic disc brakes. Like the Serial 1 MOSH/CTY e-bike, BASH/MTN provides immediate feedback that comes from a rigid frame and the instant acceleration that the single-speed drivetrain delivers.

Under Yucca Tan paint with Gloss Graffiti graphics, BASH/MTN incorporates a maintenance-free Gates Carbon Drive belt, a mid-mounted Brose S Mag motor that makes 90Nm of knee-saving torque and integrated lighting.

The bike has an integrated USB-C plug so you can charge your smartphone while riding. You can view information about your ride in the Serial 1 App. Other connectivity features include GPS tracking, Google Maps route planning, and turn-by-turn directions.

The e-bike also features a removable 529Wh battery that the company says will provide between 30 and 95 miles of range, depending on the terrain and drive mode you use. Since it’s a Class 1 e-bike, the BASH/MTN will stop providing you with assistance once you’ve reached a speed of 20 miles per hour.

The $3,999 BASH/MTN is available in four frame sizes and limited to just 1,050 units, with 525 units slated for sale in the U.S. and 525 in Europe.
