    That wasn't there when I first saw that link. A lot of other things have changed since then, too.

    For the kind of money that H-D is charging for the LiveWire, it sure ought to be made of aluminum. Besides, aluminum could act as a heat sink for the motor and gearbox.

    They sure do talk a lot about that smartphone connect crap on the website. It might lead one to suspect there's another agenda there (IP maybe?) if one were given to such suspicions...

    PS, I distinctly remember one of the things that made me like riding motorcycles was the fact that there was no phone involved.

    H-D also shows off an electric scooter and a bicycle. I wonder if the scooter will be named the Topper? The headlight on the scooter looks like it is missing something.

    Here is a link to a 17-minute long video detailing the features of the H-D liveWire. Kind of interesting, but what I really enjoyed reading were the comments below the video. The people posting comments really dumped on the poor bike, mostly about its price. Some of those guys are really funny. Most of them feel that the LiveWire is going to be a real dust collector in H-D showrooms - after a few are purchased by "rich dudes": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EKvj_u8C28
