LiveWire has been a long time in the making and comes at a crucial time for Harley-Davidson as a whole.
In fact, much of Harley’s recent attempts to distance itself from its old image has rested with the LiveWire, with the bike first making its public debut in 2014 as Project LiveWire before starting aloneside Scarlet Johansson in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
We rode the pre-production version of LiveWire at Harley-Davidson's global launch last year and were firmly impressed.
With around 235km of urban range thanks to regenerative braking and a blisteringly quick 0-100kph time of just 3-seconds it was a hoot to ride.
