2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire Review:

2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire Review: The Future of the Motorcycle?

August 21, 2019




There it is, slung beneath a monolithic 15.5-kWh battery and shrouded in a polished cast-aluminum casing. Dubbed ‘Revelation’ for obvious reasons, the electric motor powering the Harley-Davidson LiveWire represents a massive leap beyond the venerable internal combustion V-twin. The philosophical shift involved in refining the drivetrain was so significant, it required some nine years to develop and fine-tune the setup and calibration. As such, the motor is the visual and ideological centerpiece in the 549-pound LiveWire, a point of pride that aims to leave the 116-year-old brand’s woes behind and propel it fearlessly into the future.

Launched with a $29,799 pricetag that puts it in unabashed luxury-product territory, the LiveWire goes whole hog on the electrification theme. There are high-tech touch points baked in throughout: a touchscreen TFT display, a well-executed Harley-Davidson Connect app, a fresh-off-the-presses partnership with Electrify America, and two years of free charging at participating Harley-Davidson dealerships. But is the first-ever electron-powered Harley good enough to convert the old school cognoscenti, or is it a high-priced halo that will alienate eco conscious millennials?

Harley Davidson suspends production of electric motorcycle
10/16/2019


NEW YORK (AP) – Harley-Davidson is suspending production of its highly anticipated electric motorcycle because of technical issues that arose during a final quality check.


The manufacturer is counting on the LiveWire motorcycle to attract younger customers and counter flagging sales in the U.S. as its traditional customer base ages.


The company is staying in contact with dealers and assured customers they can continue to ride LiveWire motorcycles, though it didn’t specifically outline the issue.


The LiveWire costs nearly $30,000 and can go zero to 60 mph in three seconds. There is no clutch and no shifting.


The company reports third-quarter earnings next week.


U.S. sales, which have been in decline, fell 8% in the most recent quarter compared with last year.
