Some of the biggest criticisms about the Harley-Davidson LiveWire is a short-range of just 140 miles on a single charge. This doesn’t mean that it isn’t made for touring, however.

Swiss racer Michel von Tell has just set a new world record for the longest-running electric cycle in less than 24 hours. As riding over 1,000 miles on the LiveWire. The bad news is that the Guinness Book of World Records does not recognize the record. As von Tell did not have Guinness officials present.

Electrocute-news informs (via Electrek) that von Tell began in Zurich, Switzerland. And covering four countries and a total of 1,723 km (1,070 miles) of LiveWire, 23 hours and 48 minutes. He reached Stuttgart, Germany, and then flew to Singen before going to Ruggell, Lichtenstein, where he made the last stop on his trip.

Level 3 DC Quick Charge used for charging delays, which greatly shortened stop times. Level 1 on LiveWire uses a standard wall outlet that takes a full night. Tier 3 allows quick charging: almost a full battery in 40 minutes or so. So, according to the media source, von Tell would stop paying for Level 3 for a total of 25 minutes if he had to.

The previous 24-hour electric motorcycle record set in 2018 on the Zero S. With the available Charge Tank and a team of riders on the test circuit. Von Tell traveled by road, on the highway, and he was all alone.

While he could not pay the Guinness charge, which would have meant that authorities were on hand to validate the record, and did not have the resources to do the electronic self-recording needed for Guinness ‘ certification, von Tell offered signed witness accounts as evidence. This makes his LiveWire 24-hour tour the longest unofficial record holder on an electric motorcycle to date.

Level 3 allows quicker charging: nearly a full battery in 40 minutes or so. According to the media source, von Tell would stop paying for Level 3 for a total of 25 minutes anytime he had to.
