2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire

Harley-Davidson and the electric motorcycle, two things that not so long ago would have been completely antithetical to one another. But for 2020, Harley-Davidson has lived up to the promise it made in 2014, releasing the all-electric LiveWire to the public. Priced just shy of $30K, the LiveWire, with its H-D Revelation motor and 15.5 kWh battery, breaks from the traditional petrol-powered V-twins that made The Motor Company an icon; so too the sport aesthetic. But as Harley-Davidson pushes to remain relevant in an evolving market, change is inevitable. The LiveWire is no design curio but an impressive performer with instant torque—a claimed 86 pound-feet—Showa suspension, Brembo brakes, and a roster of electronic aids, including selectable ride modes, traction control, cornering ABS, rear-wheel lift mitigation, and drag-torque slip control.
