Harley-Davidson’s first all-electric motorcycle is coming August 2019, will cost $29,799 - Meet LiveWire
Harley-Davidson dropped some important details about its forthcoming (and hotly anticipated) electric motorcycle, LiveWire. The motorcycle manufacturer announced it would begin taking preorders for its first electric two-wheeler, with deliveries expected later this fall. But it won’t come cheap: the LiveWire’s list price starts at $29,799.
Harley also released some specs for LiveWire. The bike will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in under 3.5 seconds, and because its electrically powered, it requires no clutch and no gear shifting, making it much simpler for new riders. Harley says it will be able to travel 110 city miles on a single charge, but doesn’t say how that translates on the highway.
Of course, you can buy an EV car for that same price, or a Zero electric motorcycle for $10,995 so it will be interesting to see how the LiveWire sells. Harley has a good legacy but this one won't be making the same noise... or will it (Harley says LiveWire is designed to produce “a new signature Harley-Davidson sound as it accelerates).
