If you are a motorcycle enthusiast worried about climate change, you are in for a treat. You can now enjoy a proper Harley-Davidson bike without polluting the environment with harmful carbon emissions. The iconic brand’s LiveWire is a triumph of design and performance.
In fact, the company has just turned LiveWire into a standalone brand dedicated exclusively to electric motorcycles. A few years back, Harley's first electric motorcycles struggled to attract young, climate-concerned buyers because of its $29,799 price tag. The price hasn’t changed, but perhaps the company's new branding strategy will appeal to successful young entrepreneurs.
LiveWire has a new logo and plans to open showrooms in California and design hubs in Silicon Valley and Milwaukee. In addition, the new brand’s retail model will blend digital and physical formats.
The LiveWire is the perfect motorcycle to bring Harley-Davidson's vision into the next era. A high-performance two-wheeler, it makes for a smooth and thrilling ride. A masterpiece of design and innovation, it features a 105 hp motor and mind-blowing acceleration.
Actor Ewan McGregor famously rode a LiveWire all the way from Argentina to California, which proves that long road trips are possible with some planning despite the battery’s limitations.
