In the flesh (well, metal) the bike is a beauty, bearing all the hallmarks of a Harley-Davidson but with a distinct lack of a gasoline smell.

For about five years, Harley-Davidson teased the idea of an electric bike. At $29,799, it will be one of the most expensive electric bikes around.

While Harley-Davidson is yet to reveal the specs of the motorcycle, what we do know is that it'll be powered by a permanent magnet electric motor located at the bottom-most part of the chassis to achieve a low centre of gravity.

Available for pre-order, the LiveWire electric motorcycle is the bike company's first electric motorcycle.

It escalated to the point where Turkey called him a terrorist and actually issued a warrant for his arrest. Kanter is a follower of the Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, who is in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania.

The LiveWire bike includes a fully adjustable Showa suspension Michelin sports tires, cornering-enhanced anti-lock brakes, and traction control. H-D's new Revelation electric motor, cradled in a cast aluminium frame, delivers 100% of torque from standstill, although no power figures were provided.

The LiveWire bike itself goes from zero to 60mph in under 3.5 seconds, and has a high-voltage battery with an estimated range of 110 miles per charge.

Speaking at the launch, Matt Levatich, Harley-Davidson CEO said: "We're at a historic juncture of the evolution of transportation, and Harley-Davidson is at the forefront".

The OneConnect technology works with Harley Davidson's own H-D Connect tech and app, offering things like vehicle location, battery charge levels and a reminder if the bike needs servicing.

Asda announces fuel price cut amid overcharging claims
In October 2018 average fuel prices reached a four-year high with petrol costing £1.31 per litre and diesel at £1.37 per litre. Asda announced the cut of up to 1ppl off unleaded and 2ppl off diesel , following continued decreases in the wholesale cost.

Jumping right into the details, the LiveWire will be able to accelerate from 0-60 miles per hour (0-96 km/h) in less than 3.5 seconds thanks to its electric powertrain which can produce 100 percent of its rated torque at a twist of the throttle.

This allows riders to stay fully connected to their bike and surrounding area to provide a better riding experience.

It's 2019 so of course the bike is also "Smart. These premium entry-level concepts widen accessibility both for new audiences, and the traditional Harley-Davidson customer". Leave your comment below.
