As more and more companies have started to go the eco-friendly route with their products these days, it is not a surprise that even big manufacturers are taking similar steps. America’s leading bike manufacturer, Harley-Davidson, is the one taking the environmentally-friendly way this time around with their first electric motorcycle. It’s the company’s new all-electric Project LiveWire.
Details about LiveWire aren’t available at the moment, but the company is saying that it is coming with “tire-shredding acceleration and an unmissable new sound”. And the motorcycle hits 0-60 in less than four seconds.
But LiveWire is not yet available on sale. Harley-Davidson wants people to test it for getting “insight into rider expectations” of what an electric motorcycle from the company should be.
Harley-Davidson has planned a 30-city tour across the US called “The Project LiveWire Experience”, which kicks off on the 24th of June in New York City. The tour will allow the public to test ride LiveWire and provide the company with their opinions. After NYC, the tour will head to Boston and Philadelphia. Harley-Davidson will be announcing the other cities next week, and next year the tour will be expanded to more US cities and also to places in Canada and Europe.
Harley-Davidson President Matt Levatich says, “America at its best has always been about reinvention. And, like America, Harley-Davidson has reinvented itself many times in our history, with customers leading us every step of the way”.
