The All New Harley Davidson- LiveWire Electric Bike

LiveWire Electric Bike
This is the generation of electric vehicles. Many companies are in the process of making their own spin off on the modern day fuel powered vehicle. But this time around it is with electricity. In many places still, the electric powered vehicle is in use, so it is not just a concept that is thought of, but now a reality. The latest company to show off its new electric vehicle is Harley Davidson. Harley Davidson now brings us its new and first of its kind- electric powered motorcycle- the LiveWire.

It has been 4 years since Harley Davidson came out with news of the concept electric bike. But now finally the wait is over. The motorbike company is all set to release the LiveWire.

The Launch of the Electric Motorbike- LiveWire: 


The production ready bike LiveWire has been launched by the company at the EICMA motorcycle show held in Italy earlier this week. At present LiveWire is just production ready and will be available at stores only next year.

LiveWire to Save Brand: 


Harley Davidson has a lot riding on the LiveWire. The company hopes that their new electric bike will help revive a drooping brand. LiveWire will not be the only electric bike that Harley Davidson plans on coming out with.

LiveWire will just be the first in a long and successful electric bike lineup that Harley Davidson hopes to launch in coming years. The first portfolio of Harley Davidson electric powered bikes is all set for take- off in 2022.

Encouraging the switch to Electric: 


To make the switch to electric smoother for customers, Harley Davidson plans on starting Level 2 public chargers at dealer locations that will sell the LiveWire.

At present many people are weary of using an electric powered vehicle because of a lack of charging stations but with this initiative, Harley Davidson hopes to remove such notions and get people to buy the LiveWire and its ilk.

What little we Know of the Specs of the LiveWire: 


The LiveWire will be powered by a magnet electric motor that will lower the center of gravity and make it easier for the driver to handle the bike at different speeds and also to make it easier to control when stopped.

The LiveWire will also have two batteries one main one which is encased by a finned cast aluminum housing and a secondary 12 volt lithium ion one that will power the lights, controls, horn and instrument display of the LiveWire bike.

The LiveWire bike will also have seven riding modes 3 of which will be rider defined. The LiveWire bike will also have an adjustable screen above the handlebar which will be used for Bluetooth connectivity, navigation, music and many other features.

The signature Harley Davidson Sound: 


This time around the Harley Davidson sound will not be present as it is an electric powered bike.But fear not Harley Davidson has put in a tone that will increase in pitch and in volume as the Bike increases its speed.
