The initiative to go green is a widespread movement that has taken shape in a number of ways. From less waste to using more environmentally friendly products, it’s possible for anyone to lessen their carbon footprint. This is true even in the automotive industry. Luxury brands like Audi and Tesla are in the process of making more environmentally friendly vehicles, as are several other manufacturers such as Honda and Toyota.

But have you ever heard of an electric motorcycle?

According to CTV News, motorcycle company legend Harley-Davidson will have their first ever electric motorcycle available soon. Known as the 2020 LiveWire, this model is expected to come out under the “More Roads to Harley-Davidson” plan. This particular plan’s objective is to add more diversity to their existing motorcycle collection.

 

he last part is expanding the electrification; a point that will expand further with more electric models of the LiveWire expected to come out in the next three years.

 

The LiveWire has been a long time coming for Harley-Davidson. The plan to release their newest creation was announced back in 2014. Since then, the first electric motorcycle has been in development for many years. With the announcement that it’s now available pre-order before ultimately being released sometime in August, it seems as though all that work has finally paid off.

Despite being electric, the LiveWire is no slouch. Its throttle can go from zero to 60 in 3.5 seconds, and is only controlled by twisting the handle appropriately. In addition, its battery has a range of 110 miles. Any reader can keep tabs on its life- as well as other bike vitals- with H-D Connect Service, an app that monitors your bike’s power levels, among other things.

While all of this is clearly impressive, there is one drawback- the LiveWire’s price tag. With a starting MSRP of $29 799, it may make some motorcycle enthusiasts think twice about going green. However, that’s not to say that no one will want to buy the LiveWire now. 

 

If someone loves Harley-Davidson and is also extremely serious about caring for the environment however possible, then they may be willing to cough up the extra cash to buy this electric motorcycle.
