Did not see any proof of that (yet) here in the media. I expect that it will be revealed as soon as they present the 2021 models. No rumors, no confirmation AFAIK.

Oh...wait...http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2077824

this new Sportster engine with variable valve timings seems fine and cool to me... and it's EU 5 compliant according to Mo.Co.
Agree with mileage,charge stations. Where will the electricity come from to power all these charge stations? Generating plants that are powered by what? Solar and wind is not consistant, not enough power can be stored in batteries with the current technology. Sounds like moving current fuel consumption from one area to another.
