Five years ago, Harley-Davidson first unveiled their LiveWire all-electric motorcycle. And it has been so long since that first concept, we were starting to think it would never come to fruition. Then, just a few months ago, the brand unveiled another new look at the bike — again, with vague details on when to expect the official unveiling. Now, we’ve finally gotten our first peek at what the actual production version will look like.
Remarkably, the production bike actually looks quite a bit like the one we saw earlier this year — save a couple very subtle tweaks (like a lower handlebar stance and matte-finished exposed steel, as opposed to polished). And many of the features we loved remain intact, like the Brembo brake system, Showa suspension, and clutch-less “twist-and-go” throttle. The brand has also offered up a bit of a closer look at some other features we didn’t get to see before. For instance, it’s said to have compatibility with a wide array of electric chargers, a full-color touchscreen cockpit display, and Bluetooth compatibility. Harley-Davidson is still saying that the bike will be available in 2019, but release details outside of that are tenuous, at best.
