In case the fast-charging system is unavailable, Harley-Davidson will also provide a Level-1 DC charger below the seat, which will complete a full charge in 10 - 11 hours. The battery pack will be placed in the same location as the conventional IC engine. The batteries can be charged through the ‘fake fuel-filler cap', which doubles up as the electrical socket.
