Going Electric
In 2014 Harley-Davidson unveiled its latest creation — an electric motorcycle. Called Project Livewire, this extremely quick bike has “an unmistakable new sound,” according to Mark-Hans Richer, former senior vice president and chief marketing officer of the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. This year Harley-Davidson announced that Livewire would be launched as a new all-electric motorcycle brand. The first bike to be sold under the Livewire brand — called Livewire One — features an electric motor that generates 100 horsepower and 84 lb-ft of torque, powered by a 15.4 kWh high-voltage battery that provides a city range of 146 miles. Livewire One can be charged via a Level 2 charger that adds 13 miles of range per hour. The EV can also be plugged into a DC fast charger to achieve a full charge from empty in one hour. Prices start at $21,999.
