Harley-Davidson LiveWire: August, 2019

Four years after introducing the prototype, Harley-Davidson is finally ready to go electric, announcing the impending launch of the LiveWire production model in August next year.

The electric 2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire will be “the first in a broad, no-clutch “twist and go” portfolio of electric two-wheelers designed to establish the company as the leader in the electrification of the sport. LiveWire will be followed by additional models through 2022 to broaden the portfolio with lighter, smaller and even more accessible product options to inspire new riders with new ways to ride.”

It’s official, and the 2019 LiveWire looks like it’s ready to seriously ride, complete with full-size sport tires and big dual disc brakes up front. Other than that, however, important details, like range and $$$, remain unavailable…

Harley-Davidson also teased other electric models to be released further down the road. Unlike the LiveWire, these models will likely use technology developed by Alta Motors, which Harley-Davidson recently invested into. Based on trademark filings, we expect the electric powertrain will be known by the brand name “H-D Revelation.”

The LiveWire is just the beginning in its electric push, says the Motor Co.

In the sketches above and in the video above, Harley-Davidson showed several designs for potential models including what looks like some sort of utility bike with a cargo area and a bicycle-style electric motorcycle.
