FOR those paying attention in class, you will know we reported on the fact Harley-Davidson has spun its LiveWire motorcycle into a standalone brand of the same name, with its first electric bike to be known simply as the One.

Based on the LiveWire itself, the One offers tweaked hardware and software to enhance the riding experience, and showcase the new brand’s capabilities. It’s been built for the urban experience, with power and range to take you beyond.

It’s expected to have a range of around 235km, and deliver approximately 78kW of power. It will offer a connected digital riding experience, paired with world-class suspension.

A 6-axis IMU powers a suite of rider aids, ensuring the LiveWire One will be incredibly intuitive and intelligent too. Custom ride modes will further enhance the riding experience as well.

“We recognised the pioneering spirit and brand value in LiveWire for our community and took the decision to evolve the original LiveWire motorcycle into a dedicated EV brand,” Harley-Davidson CEO Jochen Zeitz said.

“Today’s LiveWire One builds on the DNA of Harley-Davidson but with the electric focus and ambition of the new LiveWire brand,” he added.

“Harley-Davidson and LiveWire will continue to rewrite the motorcycle rulebook and we are excited about this next chapter in our Legacy.”

The LiveWire One will launch with a significant price decrease in the United States, with additional markets expected to follow suit. It will, for the first time, be available to order online as well.

While an official local launch date and final Australian specifications and pricing are as yet unknown, it should arrive in Australian dealerships in early 2022.
