The Harley-Davidson LiveWire has been one my very favourite new motorcycles this year.
This all-electric motorcycle is an exhilarating and evocative new model designed to offer the rider a high-performance motorcycling experience infused with a new level of technology.
The fact it has a premium look and feel of a Harley-Davidson machine are bonus mark ups, too.
Now it’s about to face one of the ultimate tests for any road bike.
The PSNI BikeSafe Team have taken delivery of a fully electric Harley-Davidson LiveWire motorcycle.
This bike is liveried up in police colours and fitted with emergency lights and sirens.
One of the few fully electric motorcycles on the market, the Harley-Davidson LiveWire has an open road range of over 160 kilometres and boasts 104 bhp.
This one is on loan from Harley-Davidson UK, the company being keen to provide a zero emission motorcycle to the PSNI to promote such a worthwhile endeavour as BikeSafe.
As such you’ll find it on display at BikeSafe events over the coming months.
The bike has a high-voltage Recharge Energy Storage System (RESS). This provides a generous 235 km of city range.
This will enable officers with the PSNI to react in a quick, safe and clean manner. It’s not surprising that the bike has won a number of awards.
In order to get the bike ready for the job in hand, this unique, fully-electric LiveWire machine has been specially adapted to meet the exacting operational needs of the force.
This task was successfully undertaken by the technical team at Belfast Harley-Davidson, housed at the dealership in Antrim.
The immediate torque of the H-D Revelation all-electric powertrain propels the new bike.
Indeed, the LiveWire is capable of rapid acceleration to peak speed with just a twist of the throttle; there is no clutching or gear shifting required.
The power is complemented with optimised centre of gravity, rigid aluminium bolt-together frame and premium adjustable suspension.
So, if you’re in Northern Ireland anytime soon and you fancy riding a bit faster than you should, check your mirrors first because this is one ‘polis’ bike that you won’t hear coming!
