Harley-Davidson LiveWire Motorcycle release
Harley-Davidson made waves last year when it previewed its all-electric motorcycle, called the LiveWire at CES- the world’s gathering place for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. A place for entrepreneurs and innovators to cut their teeth, CES proved the ideal grounds to launch the product. The new motorcycle will be available to consumers from August 2019, with a base price of $29,799. This ultra-quiet, environmentally friendly bike taps into a new demographic of motorcycle riders, one that appreciates the purr of a clean-running machin. It isn’t manual either, meaning no clutch or gear-shifting to accelerate. This is the simply the beginning in a new generation of bikes.
