But Currie said the '19 model bikes unveiled Tuesday show Harley-Davidson remains committed to producing its signature, touring bikes.
"There's always place for the touring bike," Currie said. "Harley-Davidson pretty much invented the touring motorcycle, and it's a big, big part of our family."
He added it's important Harley-Davidson continues to grow its rider base.
The company has set a goal of creating 2 million new motorcycle riders in the next 10 years, as the company's loyal customers like Currie age.
"We've got to keep filling that funnel and exposing those new riders and younger riders to the Harley-Davidson product," Currie said. "Eventually, we're going to age out and not ride at all. So someone's got to come in and take my spot."
"There are policies and programs being rolled out so that dealers are ready in terms of the charging stations and the technology and equipment we'll need to maintain and service electric bikes," Currie said.
