2019 Harley-Davidson LiveWire Debuts in Italy
Pricing information is not revealed yet.
The world famous motorcycle brand has introduced the 2019 Harley-Davidson LiveWire at the EICMA show in Milan, Italy, giving us some information on the production version. Harley has been working on this electric motorbike for a long time. Those who have been following would know the project was initiated in 2010 and a prototype was out in 2014 with a 60 miles range.
As said earlier, the 2019 Harley-Davidson LiveWire debuted with very little details. We have no details on the output power, battery capacity and drive range. What we do know is that it uses a permanent-magnet motor and it makes an excellent sound reminiscent of Harley brand. However, we do hope it could get better with the final version.
Talking about the battery, it has a multi-cell lithium-ion unit, which can be charged with its personal Level 1 charger or a Level 2/3 through the J1772 connector. The Harley dealers will also offer a DC fast charging station at the dealerships.
The electric motorbike uses Brembo Monoblock braking system with dual 300mm discs up front and an unknown rear system. The bike will sport Michelin Scorcher tires at 180mm rear and 120mm front. There will be a touchscreen display to render important information about the bike.
Pricing information is not revealed yet. More details will be available in January.
