Project LiveWire promises to bring electric Harley Davidson motorbike on road
Every bike lover wants to own a Harley Davidson simply because of the quality that this cruise motorcycle has been proving to its users for the last 111 years. That roaring, yet soothing noise of the engine and the intimidating bike design has captured the imagination of riders for a very long time now. But now Harley Davidson is taking a detour from their traditional gas powered motorcycles and venturing into battery powered electric motorcycle division too. Project LiveWire is Harley’s attempt to make an electric cruise motorbike that is as good as the unbeatable Harley Davidson motorcycles made during the century.
Keeping up with the tradition of the Harley Davidson legacy, this electric motorbike will have a very distinct sound which is going to be somewhere between fighter jet on an aircraft carrier and electric motorcycles. According to Mark-Hans Richer, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Harley-Davidson Motor Company, the bike will have an enthralling riding experience and power that will hurl it up to tire shredding speeds.
LiveWire will go on prototype testing stage starting next week as select U.S. customers will get the chance to test the bike and give their feedback on Harley’s first-ever attempt to make an electric motorcycle. The experience will continue to the region of Canada and Europe in 2015.
The ultimate aim of this project is to learn how the users perceive this electric prototype to be, and what features they would want in the electric Harley Davidson that is slated to be released in 2016.
