Battery capacity, engine power ... we have in mind these specific questions, but the company keeps secret for the moment the technical characteristics of his electric motorcycle.

Among the few known information are the autonomy - 220 km combined cycle - and acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 3 seconds.

At home, you must provide 8 hours for a full charge knowing that you can also control the charge remotely, but using a charging station you can obtain 80% recharge in just 30 minutes.

The representative of Harley-Davidson is very satisfied with the results in the United States where LiveWire is available to pre-orders since January. In France, where LiveWire is announced from € 33,900, the opening of pre-orders will be initiated next month. Deliveries will begin at the end of the year.

In the US, the e-bike costs the equivalent of around 26,000 euros ($29,799).

The LiveWire is exhibited in Geneva alongside two other models that are expected to expand the range of the manufacturer. The first is a small all-terrain electric motorcycle and the second is an electric scooter.
