Harley-Davidson is an American motorcycle manufacturer, founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1903.One of two major American motorcycle manufacturers to survive the Great Depression (along with Indian), the company has survived numerous ownership arrangements, subsidiary arrangements , periods of poor economic health and product quality, as well as intense global competition

Harley-Davidson’s first electric bike is introduced will be far more expensive than the competition. Will brand loyalty and heritage be enough to convince riders to pony up the extra funds for an electrified.

Harley-Davidson on Monday at CES 2019 announced pricing and pre-order availability for its first production bike.On 2020 LiveWire starts at $29,799 and can be pre-ordered from US dealers as of writing. Deliveries are expected to take place this fall; additional markets will follow at a later date.

That’s significantly more than other electric motorcycles on the market today. Zero, which has been called the “Tesla of motorcycles,” sells its Zero S model starting at $10,995, and its longer-range Zero SR for $16,495. Of course, you’re not getting the premium branding and 116-year-old legacy that comes with Harley-Davidson’s nameplate, but you’re also saving nearly $20,000.

Harley also released some specs for LiveWire. The bike will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in under 3.5 seconds, and because its electrically powered, it requires no clutch and no gear shifting, making it much simpler for new riders. Harley says it will be able to travel 110 city miles on a single charge, but doesn’t say how that translates on the highway. The original LiveWire prototype could get from 0–60mph in under four seconds, and had a range of about 55 miles in “economy” mode.

LiveWire comes equipped with a telematics system called H-D Connect, which feeds data about the bike’s operations, including battery charging, service reminders, and possibly tampering, to the owner via Harley’s connected app. The motorcycle company claims LiveWire will be the first mass-market cellular-connected electric motorcycle.

And just because it’s electric doesn’t mean motorcycle lovers have to sacrifice that distinctive rumble of speed. Harley says LiveWire is designed to produce “a new signature Harley-Davidson sound as it accelerates.”

The company is mindful about keeping old customers as it seeks to attract new, more tech-focused riders. While the motorcycle industry as a whole has struggled since the 2008 financial crisis, Harley-Davidson in particular has suffered a number of losses and layoffs. It has also become one of President Trump’s most visible targets during his administration’s trade war.

Nearly four and a half years since Harley-Davidson unveiled its first electric motorcycle, the LiveWire. Later this year, you’ll finally be able to get your hands on one.
There’s no clutch or gear shifting to fool with, a fact that simplifies operation for new riders because it’s all electric. Harley says the LiveWire will produce a “futuristic” new signature sound as it accelerates and gains speed.

People who are interested can place Pre-order throgh Harley’s website or visit their local dealer.
