The first electric Harley-Davidson in the sale of 2019. What would it be?

Four years Later since the first showing of the concept of the famous company Harley-Davidson has finally unveiled their electric motorcycle. The announcement took place at the motosalon EICMA, held in Italy. Almost ready for mass production electric bike got the name Harley-Davidson LiveWire. Orders for the novelty will start to take next year. For a company like Harley-Davidson, famous primarily thanks to its motorcycles running on traditional fuel, the transition to electrification is a very big step, but at the same time, will attract new interest to the brand and will Supplement its portfolio with new models.

To stimulate sales of a new company is going to install all of the dealerships that will deal with the implementation of electric bike charging stations 2 level (produces 7 kW of power, working from the current to 30A 240-Volt).

About the price of the bike as its modifications and inventory turn company unfortunately, at the time of presentation did not report. However, it is known that the motorcycle will operate on the basis of electric motor with permanent magnets, which will be located at the lowest point of the vehicle frame to lower center of gravity, which will contribute to better handling at various speeds, and braking.

The LiveWire will get two batteries. The main will consist of Li-ion cells enclosed in a cast aluminum housing. Additional 12-volt battery is used to power headlights, digital control, horn, and instrument display.

The Bike can be charged using the charging devices of the 1st level (endowed with a variable current up to 16A have a voltage of 120 V and can give a maximum of 1.92 kW of power). The charging Jack is located under the seat of a motorcycle. For faster charging supports charging stations 2nd and 3rd level as well as the standard DC Fast Charge (DCFC), SAE J1772 (U.S.), and CCS2 — IEC type 2 for the international market.

The LiveWire will offer seven modes of the drive, three of which can be adjusted manually. Basically, these modes relate to the configuration of the high-tech suspension Shows. In addition, the motorcycle has a custom color digital display located above the wheel. You can connect to it via Bluetooth, controlling navigation, music and other functions.

Since the bike is electric, it is, of course, has the famous "harleyquin" the sound of the exhaust. To correct this assumption, Harley-Davidson has equipped the bike speakers, which speed will be heard the characteristic "growl". This is done also in favor of security. Silent electric vehicles may create an even more elevated level of risk for those pedestrians that they simply can not hear. The company added that the new sound "represents the smooth power of an electric motorcycle LiveWire".

Among other things, note the use of brake calipers Brembo Monoblock and dual 300mm brake discs. The bike is also equipped with anti-lock and traction control included as standard equipment.

Harley-Davidson reports that more information about electric motorcycle LiveWire will appear closer to the start of pre-orders for the novelty, to take that will start in January 2019.
