Electric Motorcycle News
The latest in electric motorcycle news from CES 2019 and beyond.
Harley-Davidson announced their Livewire production schedule last year, but at CES they announced pricing. The base price for the bike is $29,799, and you can reserve one at dealers now for $1000 down. Average range is claimed at 110 miles per charge and 0-60 MPH in 3.5 seconds. H-D also started offering information about their H-D Connect technology.
They’re also starting to push out more information on their other electric bikes. Not much information, but photos:
Panasonic joined H-D in the announcement, as H-D uses Panasonic’s cells in their batteries. Panasonic also announced their new GX0 motor for e-bikes this week.
Panasonic holds 40% of the e-bike market in Japan, but this year they’ve partnered with Kent Bicycles to produce U.S.-specific, Panasonic-powered e-bikes under the Van Dessel and Univega marques.
