HARLEY-DAVIDSON REVEALS PROJECT LIVEWIRE, THE FIRST ELECTRIC HARLEY-DAVIDSON MOTORCYCLE
Project LiveWire – the first electric Harley-Davidson - is bringing innovation to the street to gain feedback from customers on what they expect from an electric motorcycle that is authentic Harley-Davidson. Through our U.S. tour, we invite customers to ride the bike and tell us what they think. Even those who don’t yet ride can ride Project Livewire on Jumpstart – a simulated riding experience.
We are taking the Project Livewire experience around the country this year, and will continue in the US, Canada and Europe in 2015, to get customer feedback on what they are looking for from HD regarding this type of vehicle. Project Livewire isn’t available for sale now.
The Project LiveWire motorcycles are not for sale. We are taking the Project Livewire experience around the country this year, and will continue in the US, Canada and Europe in 2015 to gain feedback from customers on what they are looking for in this type of vehicle from Harley-Davidson. Any final decisions about whether to bring an electric motorcycle to market – and when – will be made at a later date.
Where were the Project LiveWire motorcycles built?
The Project LiveWire motorcycles were hand built at the Harley-Davidson Product Development Center in Wisconsin.
No. We believe there continues to be a strong future for our traditional products. An electric Harley is simply one of the ways we are exploring how we might further grow the diverse family of Harley riders. And just like all Harley-Davidson motorcycles, Project LiveWire is an expression of individuality and iconic style. This motorcycle just happens to be electric.
