We at American Iron Magazine plan to follow the launch and reactions to the concept Harley electric motorcycle, code named LiveWire.
While details are still few, our research to date indicates the following:
Harley-Davidson management is actively seeking customer feedback – positive and negative.
It is at least two years before Harley would offer this kind of motorcycle for sale IF they offer it at all.
The Lithium-Ion batteries in the concept machine offer a range of approx 100 miles “under typical riding conditions.”
This concept motorcycle can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds.
“Select consumers” around the country will get a chance to ride this concept bike starting next week. NOTE American Iron Magazine staff has been offered one of the very first rides on Monday.
Harley is aiming this new machine (along with the recently introduced Street 500 and 750 motorcycles) at a new and younger audience.
This electric motorcycle concept has been in the works at Harley for at least four years.
No prices or even price ranges have been offered by Harley.
American Iron Magazine plans on having a ride review and photos posted here in a few days.
