Livewire is Coming...

...in August 2019.

And it's only $29,799!! I'll need to wait until it goes on sale.

Some folks seek the comfort of the straight and narrow. Me? I prefer the twisted road.

Waaaaaaay overpriced. Had it been around $12k, maybe, $30k is insane.

i could not have justified even $10k. i didnt give anywhere near that for my softail, and it would be used basically for the same purpose. scoot around town for an hour or two, then back in the garage.

I agree with you, Dave. It will take a determined "early adopter" to make this purchase and will likely start with some of the flashy entertainers as a prestige buy.

H-D recommends a 220v charging unit (like those used for electric cars) to enable a quick (35 minute) charge. Charging using a 110v outlet is available, but will take ~8.5 hours. The estimated range is 110 miles, which isn't too bad for a commuter.

While Zero Motorcycles is the other US manufacturer of electric motorcycles, I think the Livewire is intended to compete with the Energica Ego (made in Italy) in terms of performance and price point.

its about the same to me as electric cars. until they make them where theyll run farther on a charge, make them quickly charge on a wall outlet, and make them where everyone who rides can afford to buy one, theyre not gonna be a sucess.
