140 MILES CITY RANGE*
The LiveWire™ motorcycle features a high-voltage battery (or RESS; Rechargeable Energy Storage System) composed of lithium-ion cells surrounded by a finned, cast-aluminum housing. The high-voltage battery provides 140 miles (225 km) of city range or 88 miles (142 km) of combined stop-and-go and highway range.**
*Riding range estimates provided following the SAE J2982 and are based on expected performance of a fully-charged battery when operated under specified conditions. Actual range will vary depending on riding habits, ambient weather and equipment conditions.
**As measured using the MIC City and MIC Combined (70mph) tests.
TWO EASY WAYS TO CHARGE
Use the onboard Level 1 charger and power cord to connect to any standard household outlet and get a full charge overnight. For a faster charge, visit any public Level 3 DC Fast Charge station for 80% charge in 40 minutes or 100% charge in an hour.
ADVANCED RIDING TECHNOLOGY SYSTEM
The LiveWire™ model is equipped with an Electronic Chassis Control (ECC) system. The separate functions of ECC work together to give the rider more confidence and control in less-than-ideal situations. The Electronic Chassis Control (ECC) system manages cornering-enhanced Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Traction Control System (TCS) and Drag-Torque Slip Control System (DSCS) by modulating torque available at the rear wheel. It combines electronic controls and hydraulics where required, utilizing the latest six-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) and ABS sensor technology

It is a technology that provides cellular connectivity that can link a LiveWire™ owner with their motorcycle through their smart phone using the latest version of the Harley‑Davidson™ App.
H-D™ Connect allows owners to connect remotely to their LiveWire™ motorcycle and allows for viewing of key vehicle health information such as battery charge status. It will also send you security alerts if your bike has been bumped, tampered with or moved. GPS-enabled stolen vehicle tracking provides peace of mind. H‑D™ Connect also tells you the location of your parked motorcycle on a map, sends you automated reminders about upcoming vehicle service and a charge station locator.
H-D™ Connect will be free for the first year. After that, there will be a subscription fee.
Without the subscription that is required to maintain a cellular service, owners will not be able to take advantage of any of the remote status and security features.
Cellular service is required for the H‑D™ Connect Service related capabilities to function. Generally, H‑D™ Connect will continue to function in areas with lower cellular service quality coverage such as 3G areas.
Vehicle usage data (anonymized where required) will be collected to improve overall vehicle quality and the rider’s experience. Riders will be able to opt out of the service. Detailed data collection and privacy information will be available at the time of service launch.
