The all new LiveWire features a full LED headlamp that is housed in a uniquely styled headlamp cowl. The tank also has the Sportster design language. The all electric ‘Revelation' motor is hidden underneath the cast aluminum frame and this makes the motorcycle different than other electrics available in the markets.

Thoughts About The Scheduled 27 August Launch

Fascinating times we think! An all electric Harley-Davidson should do well in the country and we're sure the company hopes that the all electric will do well. In fact, they must hope that the motorcycle starts turning sales around. We wonder why they decided to bring in a fairly large electric motorcycle. Pricing is critical and had Harley built an electric here, they could have priced it way cheaper - fueling heavy sales simply because it is a Harley.
