When it comes to creating a splash in the moto world, perhaps no one in the past year did it better than Harley-Davidson when it unveiled an electric motorcycle. H-D, long known as a company tied firmly to vintage roots, shocked everyone with its electrically powered LiveWire.

Harley-Davidson LiveWire First Ride

The first electric motor from the Motor Company made an impression on millions around the globe, including our readers who voted the LiveWire as the top motorcycle in our Readers Choice Electric category. The LiveWire has an appealing stance, attractive finish quality and a surprisingly dynamic performance on the road, which earned our respect. Yours, too.

Discuss this at our Harley-Davidson LiveWire Forum.

Now all the LiveWire needs is a reasonable MSRP and a commitment to be put into production. Until then, Motorcycle.com’s Best Electric – the Zero SR – remains the choice of our editors.
