Harley-Davidson is serious about electric motorcycles and announces the new LiveWire brand

Electromobility is not only cars, but also two-wheelers. Harley-Davidson, one of the most recognizable manufacturers of motorcycles, usually really loud, intends to enter the world of emission-free engines and quiet mobility.

LiveWire Electric Motorcycles

A friend of two-wheelers said during one of the conversations that the electric Harley-Davidson is a profanation. According to him, each vehicle of this manufacturer must generate a sound that can be heard from the other end of the street. I dare say that my friend is not alone in this belief, but the world is changing and whether we like it or not, we will have to adapt to these changes.

Maybe not as much as cars, but the future of motorcycles will also be electric. The biggest players on the market are aware of this and are already trying their hand at creating two-wheelers powered only by electric motors.

Harley-Davidson has already shown an electric model called LiveWire . But it wasn’t just an experiment. Moreover, the aforementioned name will be used to create a new brand of electric motorcycles, which in the near future will most likely consist of at least several different vehicles.

The new model will be launched soon

It won’t be the first bike to feature LiveWire in its name, but it will be the first after creating an entirely new brand. According to The Verge , Harley-Davidson intends to introduce a new electric car on July 8, during this year’s International Motorcycle Show.

With a mission to be the most coveted electric motorcycle brand in the world, LiveWire will pioneer the bikes of the future, in pursuit of urban adventure and beyond. LiveWire also plans to innovate and develop technology that will be applied to electric motorcycles in the long term.Jochen Zeitz, President, President and CEO of Harley-Davidson.

We learned that LiveWire will get its own logo and operate as a more independent brand. Despite this, cooperation with dealers who already offer internal combustion motorcycles of the American manufacturer is being considered.

It is difficult to say whether electric motorcycles will achieve the expected success in the near future. It will certainly not be easy to convince customers to spend their money on a quiet two-wheeler. Yes, they will probably get a really fast machine, but not necessarily offering a long range, and at the same time requiring a noticeably longer “fuel” than in the case of internal combustion motorcycles.
