Harley-Davidson’s Electric Motorcycle – Project LiveWire

Harley-Davidson is touring the United States getting customer feedback on a prototype of their first electric motorcycle. It’s unlike any motorcycle that they’ve ever produced. Rather than try and simulate the classic Harley potato-potato idle of their air-cooled V twin they have wisely gone with something totally new.

If you’ve ever been surprised by a Prius sneaking up on you in a parking lot you know electric cars do not need to make any sound. For their motorcycle, Harley-Davidson has engineered a sound that is unique and sounds more like something out of Tron than a factory floor in Milwaukee. No dials, this bike features a touchscreen display and LED lights.

No word on availability or pricing. Harley-Davidson even refuses to list specs but I hear that it can go from 0-60 in 4 seconds and tops out at 93 MPH. Find out more at the Project LiveWire site.
