In 2014 Harley-Davidson built a prototype of the LiveWire electric motorcycle and let riders tool around on it. They used the feedback and data collected to refine the bike into the model you’ll see on the showroom floors of selected HD dealerships next year.
The LiveWire will let you pick from seven different riding modes and features a touchscreen infotainment system for your music and GPS. The suspension is fully adjustable and made by Showa, the 17-inch wheels are outfitted with Michelin tires, and Brembo makes the enhanced anti-lock brakes.
While HD isn’t giving out specifics on the motor, range or price, they have confirmed the LiveWire will be chargeable via household outlets and, unlike other electric bikes, the LiveWire will make noise. Thanks to the placement of a gear between the motor and drive belt, a tone will be produced that increases when the bike goes faster. We’ll find out next year exactly how fast that is. – Learn More
