First electric bike from Harley-Davidson will be available by August 2019 in the global markets.
Fuel burning humongous engines with mystic and distinctive sound is what we always associate with Harley-Davidson Motorcycles but now with the LiveWire this thought will be changed. Harley-Davidson has unveiled the production model of their first electric bike which was shown as a concept model a few years back. The bike was showcased at the celebration of the company’s 115th anniversary.
The modern-day motorcycle is expected to come with a load of tech. The all LED headlight, colourful screen as instrument cluster along with smartphone connectivity for navigation, calls and running vehicle diagnosis are the features to be equipped. On the mechanical front, fully adjustable Showa suspension is provided at the front and rear. Braking hardware will be a twin disc setup with Brembo monoblock.
The Harley-Davidson LiveWire features a new swingarm. The design is one of the key elements of the electric bike. The redesigned fuel tank, tail section and seats are updated from the concept model. The charging port of the bike is cleverly integrated on the fuel tank instead of the standard fuel cap.
The production of the LiveWire will take place at the Harley’s U.S. facility located in Pennsylvania. As of now, only the production model is showcased and details of engine output, range and price are still under covers. The Harley-Davidson LiveWire is also expected to hit the Indian shores soon after its global launch next year.
