Harley-Davidson reveals first ever electric motorcycle, the Project LiveWire [videos]

Are combustion engines soon history and electric vehicles the future? Most likely yes and as you can see even iconic Harley Davidson is looking into future with a Project LiveWire, the first Harley-Davidson electric motorcycle.

This is a big surprise from a company known for loud V-twin engines and big pipes.

The LiveWire design reminds of a naked sport bike with an exposed frame and dual-sided rear swing arm suspension.

“Project LiveWire is more like the first electric guitar – not an electric car,” said Mark-Hans Richer, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. “It’s an expression of individuality and iconic style that just happens to be electric. Project LiveWire is a bold statement for us as a company and a brand.”

The project is not for sale yet, but it looks quite ready for the production as starting next week select consumers across the U.S. will be able to ride and provide feedback on the bike. All that information will help shape the future of Harley-Davidson’s first-ever electric motorcycle.
