Harley-Davidson is looking to attract younger customers to offest a drop in sales of old-fashioned bikes.

The motorcycle giant announced last week that it is buying StaCyc, Inc., a California-based maker of two-wheeled electric bikes designed for kids.

StaCyc produces two versions of electric-powered two-wheelers specifically designed for kids, a 12-inch and a 16-inch model, that use a 20-volt battery.

These vehicles max out at roughly 10 mph and cost between $649 and $699.

Harley-branded models of the bikes will be sold through Harley-Davidson dealers, and will be available in the U.S. in the third quarter of 2019.
