Long-standing motorbike manufacturer Harley-Davidson has come to market with its first ever fully electric bike – the LiveWire.
Due to be available from August with a price tag of just under $30,000 (approx. £23,500), the LiveWire will be able to travel 110 miles in the city on a single charge and can hit 60mph in just 3.5 seconds. Whether or not those statistics, along with the Harley badge, are enough to beat the current market leader – the less expensive Zero S ($10,995) remains to be seen.
To keep motorbike enthusiasts happy, Harley-Davidson also have the bike a fake new acceleration sound to fill the silence an electric motor creates.
A UK release date and price has not yet been unveiled but it can now be pre-ordered in the US.
