Harley-Davidson unveil their brand new electric motorcycle
The world renowned motorcycle manufacturer Harley- Davidson has unveiled their first ever electric motorcycle. The electric bike is known as Project Livewire and the company are calling on members of the public to test the vehicle. The company revealed this bike will only be a test model for potential future bikes. To promote the new prototype the bike will be driven down the Route 66 in the US and will visit 30 Harley Davidson dealerships in the space of a year, where members of the public will get to try it out.
Harley- Davidson has said that Project Livewire will be able to achieve a top speed of 148km/h and will need a recharge every 209 kilometres. Mark-Hans Richer, senior-vice president at Harley-Davidson, said Project LiveWire is more like the first electric guitar – not an electric car. “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.”
