The arrival of Harley-Davidson electrification did not live up to its history. In 2019 he launched the Harley-Davidson LiveWire, its first electric model, but it was far from being the best seller that it supposed for its high price: U.S. dollar 29.999. Milwaukee executives then decided to start from scratch and created a new brand dedicated exclusively to selling zero emission products. Thus was born Live Wire...
The first model of the brand new company is the LiveWire One, which is nothing more than that HD LiveWire, with subtle changes in the design - almost imperceptible - and a price of U.S. dollar 21.999, that is to say about $ 8.000 cheaper than the original product.
“As part of The Hardwire Strategy, we made a commitment that Harley-Davidson would lead the power industry. We recognized the pioneering spirit and brand equity in LiveWire for our community and made the decision to turn the original LiveWire motorcycle into a dedicated electric vehicle brand. ", he claimed Jochen zeitz, CEO of Harley-Davidson.
“The LiveWire One builds on the Harley-Davidson DNA, but with the electric focus and ambition of the new LiveWire brand. Harley-Davidson and LiveWire will continue ”, Agregó.
The LiveWire One has an electric motor that delivers 75 kW, that is to say about a hundred horses. As a reference, it is worth saying that it is slightly less powerful than the HD LiveWire that it delivers 78 kW. The autonomy of the new product is 235 kilometers in town and 152 kilometers on Route.
The One, the first of two models to be presented in due course, accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 3 seconds and its maximum speed is limited to 177 km / h.
