future Harley-Davidson LiveWire rider

What a weekend. Leeds Harley-Davidson had the pleasure of being the last stop on the LiveWire Truck Tour Event. 

Although the weather was not on our side, guests got to ride the fully electric motorcycle on the rolling road. They got to feel the unbelievable amount of torque that is instantly available through the electric engine. The Harley-Davidson experts explained to our guests the four different pre-programmed ride modes and let them feel the thrill of the electric engine. The 4.3inch state-of-the-art touch screen display showed just how quickly those numbers fly up when you twist that throttle.

Harley-Davidson’s industry leading electric motorcycle was fully charged to 146 miles, or 235 km, in one hour using our DC Fast Charger (CCS Combo Connector). We also needed to charge our demonstrator bike, so we hooked that up to the standard outlet in the dealership, which is a level one charger, and it was ready for a day of test rides. However due to the weather and the safety of our Harley family, we stuck to just the rolling road.  

Due to social distancing regulations, we allowed each rider 15 minutes on the motorcycle along with time to ask the Harley-Davidson ambassadors any questions about the Livewire. Questions asked included price, 0-60 and warranty. Starting with an on the road price of £28995, the Livewire reaches 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds. This rapid acceleration is due to the instant amount of torque that is available. 

Harley-Davidson are confident with their product and how it is going to impact an ever so changing industry. The LiveWire has a 5 year, unlimited mileage warranty and is available in three different colours. Vivid Black, Orange Fuse and Yellow Fuse.


 After a great day of meeting some of our Harley-Davidson family, giving out goodies and hosting The Harley-Davidson LiveWire Truck Tour, there was a great sense of community again. Social distancing regulations created a safe environment which allowed everyone who came to feel safe and enjoy the camaraderie that we all love.
