LiveWire, the electric motorcycle company under Harley Davidson, has taken its sweet time to release details on their upcoming bike. Finally, we now have some clues as to what it will be. With the confirmation of an official unveiling on May 10th, we have a teaser video to hold us over until the meantime.
While LiveWire has recently made a few electric bicycles, this will be their second flagship electric motorcycle, following LiveWire One in 2018. The bits of news that have leaked out suggest it will be a middleweight motorcycle named the S2 or the Del Mar, meaning “of the sea.”
This time around, the company will likely try to reach a broader range of consumers and budgets. That means toning down the power specs. The LiveWire One had an impressive 100 horsepower and a top speed of 110 mph (177 km/h), which can be daunting to new riders.
You can check out the short teaser video below. And when we say short, it really is only a brief 15 seconds.
You probably saw the bike’s back wheel behind some purple distortion if you were paying close attention. It definitely isn’t the design of LiveWire One, nor does it match any concept art or sketches leaked so far. So it must be something new.
We know that Harley-Davidson’s LiveWire division has developed a modular electric motorcycle platform called Arrow. That will allow the company to build several motorcycles on the same chassis and help them reach its goal of selling 100,000 electric motorcycles by 2026.
We will have to wait until next week to learn more about the bike, such as specs, price, and when it will be available. Stay tuned for more updates when Harley Davidson and LiveWire hopefully have all the answers.
