MILWAUKEE – Wisconsin’s iconic motorcycle manufacturer, Harley Davidson, said (on Thursday, July 11) that its new electric motorcycle can accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in three seconds.

The Harley-Davidson LiveWire is described by the company as an all-new, all-electric motorcycle, designed to offer the rider a high-performance motorcycling experience.

It has a trademarked all-electric power train, with rapid acceleration and no clutching or gear shifting required.

It features an optimized center of gravity, rigid aluminum frame and premium adjustable suspension components for dynamic handling. With up to 146 miles of range, performance is optimized for the urban street-rider.

The company says the LiveWire model is the first in a broad portfolio of electric two-wheelers designed to establish Harley-Davidson as the leader in the electrification of motorcycles.

The LiveWire motorcycle will be available in 2019 through select authorized Harley-Davidson dealerships in the United States, Canada and most European countries where Harley-Davidson conducts business, with expanding global availability planned for 2020 through 2021
