2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire

2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire

The 2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire is the company’s first electric motorcycle ever. It’s fast and impressive to look at but comes with only a mildly impressive range and a soul-crushing price tag. The motorcycle is a move in the right direction for Harley, but it’s far from the bike most people wanted.

The LiveWire gets a permanent magnet electric motor that provides instant torque and can launch the bike from 0-60 mph in three seconds. The range sits at 146 miles in the city and 95 miles on the highway. The engine makes 105 hp and 86 lb-ft of torque.

The LiveWire is the first of its kind. Harley will build more electric bikes in the future. This bike is the halo bike for the rest. The LiveWire has an absolutely outrageous starting price of $29,799.

The motorcycle is available in three colors: Vivid Black, Orange Fuse, and Yellow Fuse.

The permanent magnet electric motor can produce 100 percent of its rated torque instantly – it’s the reason for LiveWire™ motorcycle’s incredible acceleration. It’s located below the battery to lower the center of gravity for easier handling.

The lightweight cast aluminum frame is extremely rigid, and contributes to the precise, responsive handling that makes the LiveWire™ motorcycle a thrill to ride.

Fully Adjustable Suspension

The high-performance SHOWA front and rear suspension is fully adjustable. So you can dial in comfort and handling with precision for your own riding style.


The LiveWire™ motorcycle rides on premium 180mm rear and 120mm front H-D/Michelin Scorcher Sport tires. They were designed exclusively to enhance the ride and handling performance of this ground-breaking machine.
