Harley-Davidson company has introduced its first electric motorcycle LiveWire which will come in 2019. LiveWire is an electric motorcycle prototype and Harley-Davidson’s first electric vehicle.
The electric motorcycle is designed at Harley-Davidson’s Product Development Center in Wisconsin and built at Harley-Davidson’s state of the art manufacturing facility in York, PA. It has already introduced its masterpiece to the media in June, 2014. In January 2018, Harley has announced that the motorcycle is entering production and will hit the market in 18 months.
“Seven different riding modes let you dial in your ride. Music and GPS are controlled by a state-of-the-art touchscreen infotainment system that’s Bluetooth enabled. The EV powertrain means there is little service required”, writes Harley-Davidson official website.
Now there are some plans for the LiveWire motorcycle to be available in select dealerships through North America and parts of Europe in 2019. About the price we will be informed only in January.
The LiveWire motorcycle has an on-board Level 1 charger and can be charged through most standard household outlets. It’s also fast charge capable. The gear set between the motor and the drive belt has been designed to produce a tone that increases in pitch and volume with speed, producing an exciting aural response to speed and acceleration.
To the question of what is the difference between Project LiveWire and LiveWire? www.harley-davidson.com answered that Project Livewire was an electric prototype model created in 2014. They allowed real riders to test out the motorcycle across the world, and feedback was collected on the experiences and features of the motorcycle. This input was then used to refine the development of the all-new LiveWire motorcycle – a next generation electric motorcycle that builds on the performance of the original prototype.
