Harley-Davidson Unveils A More Affordable Livewire ‘ONE’ EV Motorcycle

In 2019, after years of teasers and promo videos, Harley-Davidson finally released its all-electric Livewire model, taking things in a markedly different, more performance-oriented direction for the brand in an effort to tap into a new and younger customer base. However, the Livewire’s $29,799 MSRP meant the model wasn’t accessible to most riders. Recognizing this, the MoCo has now announced a new Livewire EV sub-brand that will be offering a more affordable version of the proton-powered moto with what’s been christened the “ONE.”

Like the regular H-D Livewire, the ONE is kicked along by the same Revelation PM Electric Motor, which is now paired with a slightly smaller 15.4kWh rechargeable Energy Storage System that can still receive an 80% charge in 40 minutes (or a 100% charge in an hour) and affords the same range with 146-miles city miles (or 95 mixed freeway and city miles). Power output has also dropped from 105hp and 86ft-lbs of torque to 100hp and 84ft-lbs, though the original Livewire’s 3.12-second 0-60mph time has also dropped to three seconds flat. The Livewire ONE also retains its predecessor’s top-shelf Showa suspension front and aft and infotainment system, though also loses the Reflex Defensive Rider Systems electronic aids. Available for order now, the 2022 Livewire ONE starts at $21,999 — $7,800 less than the original model.

Purchase: $21,999
