An Electric Motorcycle With Harley’s Touch!
LiveWire’s latest electric motorcycle called the LiveWire One is available at a time when people are flocking to any and all things electric. With the promise of reduced or zero emissions and the thrill of riding past an expensive gas station, now is the time to push these alternative vehicles. The LiveWire has a host of good features, not the least of which is an internal powertrain system manufactured by Harley Davidson. Let’s not forget, LiveWire was spun off as its own brand by Harley in 2021!
Range: 146 City/96 Combined (city and highway)
Speed: 0–60 in 3 seconds with a top speed of 110 mph.
Charging: Full charge achieved in 60 minutes using DC fast-charging. You can go from 0 to 80% within 40 minutes. Standard charging (110V) 11 hours or overnight.
Braking: Powerful Regenerative braking while also reclaiming lost energy
The LiveWire weighs 562 lbs, with a lot of the heft coming from the Harley Davidson-designed powertrain called the “Revelation.” In LiveWire’s own words:
The Revelation™ powertrain provided by Harley-Davidson delivers linear and constant acceleration from 0, producing 100 horsepower and 84 ft. lbs. of torque. When you’re not moving, the motor’s haptic pulse creates a sensory connection between you and the bike.
Keeping the ride as smooth as possible is an industry-leading suspension system with SHOWA® SFF-BP® fork and BFRC™ rear shock. Both of these offer full adjustability and precision handling throughout your ride.
Not to be forgotten is a three-fold safety system, including C-ABS (Cornering Enhanced Antilock Brakes), DSCS (Drag-Torque Slip Control System), and C-TCS (Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System). These work in concert to prevent wheel lock-up and enhance rider control. The entire point is to keep the rider on the bike.
The infotainment system is incorporated into a 4.3" touchscreen display with BlueTooth and LTE. You will have full connectivity between the bike and your smartphone through the LiveWire application.
With a starting price of $22,799, expect this price to increase with freight, documentation, registration, and other fee/fees. It's the price you have to pay to have a zero-emission electric motorcycle nowadays. If you are lucky, you will get to take advantage of the available tax incentive!
