Harley-Davidson LiveWire Motorcycle

Harley-Davidson has announced that its long-awaited electric motorcycle LiveWire will be launched in 2019. The new models are big changes from the classic cruisers the brand is known for, with a dual sport, naked streetfighter, and an all-new cruiser.

The company promises that its first electric motorcycle, the LiveWire, will go on sale in 2019. This bike was first previewed in a sub-500-pound concept in 2014, and while it packed just 58 pound-feet of torque, having it available from zero rpm made it quite the interesting little motorcycle.

The bike has a modern frame and suspension, with USD forks and monoshock rear with Brembo providing the stopping power. Expect more detailed specs as the launch date gets closer. The LiveWire is being hailed as “the first in a broad, no-clutch ‘twist and go’ portfolio of electric two-wheelers designed to establish the company as the leader in the electrification of the sport,” wrote the company in a press release.
