The all-new 2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire has been around as a prototype for nearly a half decade. H-D was keen to get this motorcycle perfect before unleashing it on public roads, so we have to assume this is the best version of the coolest new electric motorcycle to come along in years. Make no mistake; there is a lot riding on the LiveWire for Harley. The Motor Company is banking on the public buying into the electric bike market and, unlike the other big manufacturers, is the first of them all to put its money where its mouth is. H-D dealerships that offer the LiveWire will also be equipped with charging stations.
