The 2019 Harley-Davidson LiveWire electric cruiser has been previewed to the public ahead of its official release due next year.
The brand’s first full-production electric motorcycle is one of many models that will be produced as part of their major evolution.
No specific details have been released regarding the production LiveWire yet.
There’s no doubt that 2019 will be a massive, MASSIVE year for American bike manufacturer, Harley-Davidson. This very iconic brand is set for a major evolution with the introduction of some very outstanding models like the Streetfighter, Pan America, and FXDR 114 to name a few.
A part of this major step in evolution is the Harley-Davidson LiveWire electric cruiser. First introduced back in 2014, the project has seen a lot of upgrades, updates, and additions to the whole concoction. Harley-Davidson’s most futuristic bike is finally ready for the last major step; production.
According to Paul James, Director of Programme Management of Harley-Davidson, “This is a big moment for us because our engineers have been working away on it for years and now they finally get to show it to the public. It’s kind of a relief in many ways. We’ve done so much work to move it on.”
Although the first-ever LiveWire was introduced a few years back, H-D is claiming that the final production bike is almost completely different from its origins where both performance and functionality is taken to a whole new level.
Some of these features include:
- Smartphone connectivity via its full-colour TFT dash
- High-end Brembo monoblock units
- All-round fully-adjustable Showa suspension package
- Fast-charging mode using the normal wall socket
- Easy access to bike’s engine mapping and diagnostics
- Twist and go transmission with step down gearbox
No other information has been released regarding the production 2019 Harley-Davidson LiveWire such as price, power, or torque but we’re confident that the true spirit of H-D will remain embedded in the bike’s DNA even if it’s an all-electric cruiser.
