The LiveWire wasn’t the final motorcycle — in actuality , has an electric scooter at the functions.
Harley-Davidson knows it needs to adapt or be left behind. The shift in thinking started when the company announced its intentions to construct the LiveWire electric bike years back. With that halo version available on the market finally, we received a glimpse at what’s next.
H-D’s official site has published an updated concept sketch of its upcoming”middleweight” electric bike. Last 8, electric reported about the images. The sketch follows a prior bit of design artwork we saw over one year before, and it is shaping up nicely so far.
There’s an updated look at the front for the signature headlight of H-D, but the body adopts the battery board, as opposed to working around it like the LiveWire. It’s possibly a better-looking machine because of this. The frame seems nearly distinctly un-Harley like. As its riders grow older for a business working to attract a new customer base, that’s probably a good thing.
Things that are another simple to see from the upgraded sketch: there’s a battery, a set of barrels for whoever’s along for the ride and a forward-mounted controller. Hopefully, this middleweight bike stands to be a lot cheaper, Considering that the LiveWire was always assumed to be the halo atop this brand new bike lineup. The LiveWire starts at an eye-watering $30,000.
Beyond this particular bike, there’s more to come from H-D’s updated take on the business. There’s a lightweight version in the works with appearances and E-bicycles from the pipeline. All of these are intended for the 2021-2022 timeframe, according to a demonstration photo.
