    Motorcycle.com rides and reviews the 2020 H-D livewire. The bike gets severely downgraded in their test score for having very poor value. Gee, I could have told them that:

    I'd be curious as to how they establish their notion of value.
    How is it any poorer value than any other Harley for example?

    Like all of their test score chart items it would appear to be a judgement call by the reviewer(s).
