    Maybe it's time for them to go electric? :-)

    So Harley means freedom. I always thought it meant obsolete.

    But can you supply an actual electric Harley that needs that sound?

    Here are the latest photos from the EICMA show. Still nothing about specifications or pricing, though: https://electrek.co/2018/11/06/harle...le-production/

    They are saying it does DC fast charge, so they must be running at least 200 volts for that to work reliably, right?

    I seem to recall that the prototype was running something like 300 volts.

    They are saying a lot of things. The original prototypes didn't have chargers. Do you see a DC fast charger on these mockups? Or any charger?

    Somebody in marketing slapped some bodywork on one of the prototypes, mined some specs that sound awesome (300 mile range, I've seen quoted) and keeps his job for another 6 months. Sorry, you know I have a short burn for this bullshit.

    Just wait until you see the LiveWire's price. As a H-D "premium" vehicle, I expect it will be priced right up there with their CVO motorcycles. Last night, in the December issue of Rider Magazine, I read about their latest 117CI CVO full-dress bagger, which is priced at a staggering $43,900! So when it comes to pricing the LiveWire - the sky is the limit.
