Harley-Davidson debuts

Harley-Davidson debuts its first electric motorcycle, coming 2019

Nov 8, 2018



After toying with the idea for the better part of four years, Harley-Davidson this week showed off its first electric motorcycle at the Milan Motorcycle Show. The electric bike drops in 2019, but the company is holding back on to all the important specs about speed, range, and charging for now.

The bike will carry the same “LiveWire” name used when it was still a prototype, but it otherwise looks like a much more complete design and, frankly, a refreshing new vision for what a Harley-Davidson motorcycle should look like in 2019. The company could use some help, too. While the motorcycle industry as a whole has struggled since the 2008 financial crisis, Harley-Davidson in particular has suffered a number of losses and layoffs. It has also become one of President Trump’s most visible targets during his administration’s trade war.

Harley-Davidson’s first all-electric motorcycle


Harley-Davidson’s first all-electric motorcycle is coming August 2019, will cost $29,799


Jan 7, 2019



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.

That’s significantly more than other electric motorcycles on the market today. Zero, which has been called the “Tesla of motorcycles,” sells its Zero S model starting at $10,995, and its longer-range Zero SR for $16,495. Of course, you’re not getting the premium branding and 116-year-old legacy that comes with Harley-Davidson’s nameplate, but you’re also saving nearly $20,000.
