The iconic motorcycle manufacturer has a hard nut to crack because it needs to figure out how to combine its brand and customer base with the new trend of electrification. The LiveWire could be a wire to connect the present and the future.
The design of the LiveWire is interesting, although we need to wait and see how the market will judge Harley-Davidson's first EV when the first examples will hit the market in North America and Western Europe in the fall of 2019.
Harley-Davidson LiveWire specs:
- range around 95 miles (152 km) of combined stop-and-go and highway driving or 146 miles (235 km) of city driving
- 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in 3 seconds
- 80% fast charging takes around 40 minutes
- standard charging overnight using on-board Level 1 charger (up to 13 miles range per hour)
