Harley-Davidson is Making Its First Electric Motorcycle

Electric motorcycles by Harley-Davidson are heading to a street near you.

Harley-Davidson is finally getting into the electric vehicle game. The company’s latest endeavor is the electric Project LiveWire motorcycle. The catch? It’s not coming out for another five years.

It will be an interesting project, as the LiveWire concept can only go 60 miles on a charge (at best). Want to add another onboard battery? It’s not quite that simple. The physical characteristics of a motorcycle mean that the LiveWire might not be able to accommodate battery packs without affecting its sleek look or maneuverability.

Despite these potential limitations, the fact that Harley-Davidson is even considering breaking into the e-vehicle scene means there is a growing interest in alternative, more eco-friendly forms of transportation.

Fans of the well-known brand will just have to wait and see how the LiveWire stands up.
