Harley-Davidson Livewire is an electric motorcycle to be launched by Harley-Davidson. This is a very big moment for the american company.
It is, probably, the biggest motorcycle news of the year: Harley-Davidson joins the electric motorcycle world. We are talking about a very conservative company where, usually, revealing a new model means the same old bike with improved cases, seat and new colors.
There are no official details yet, but according to Asphalt & Rubber (which also got some pictures), it will have 74 hp and 52 lb ft. of torque (70 NM), which is good. On the other hand, it seems it will have a not so impressive range – about 50 miles (80 km). But these are no official figures so we have to wait a couple of hours for the model to be officially revealed.
This news come right after some rumors that appeared last week. Harley-Davidson Livewire will not hit production soon. There will be some demo-motorcycle sent to the dealers to get customer feedback. It will be very interesting to see the reaction of the V-Twin aficionados.
