Now that Harley-Davidson's Livewire electric motorcycle is on its way to the public, Harley dealers have to make some changes in order to be a part of the future that the company hopes to create for itself.

Harley-Davidson Releases Performance Numbers On The LiveWire

LiveWire comes with four pre-programmed modes: sport, road, range, and rain, along with three ride modes the rider can customize. From the muscular shape of the motor to its aggressive stance, LiveWire ™ motorcycle delivers the iconic look you expect from a Harley ‑ Davidson ® motorcycle.

To start with, according to a report published Friday by Electrek, every H-D dealership that wants to be certified to sell the all-electric Livewire has to have dedicated electric charging stations installed, and we're not just talking a painted square on the ground with a few free 110-volt outlets. Harley wants stocking dealers to have at least one Level 3 DC fast charger on hand.

Next, to be a stocking dealership for the Livewire, each location needs to have at least one specially-trained staff member on hand to help buyers. This means that someone looking to plunk down $30,000 on an electric motorcycle won't have to deal with the motorcycle equivalent of the roof-slap-meme guy telling them that the Livewire can fit so many volts in it.

Harley - Davidson Confirms LiveWire on Schedule for 2019 Release Harley reports its debut electric model is on schedule for a release next year, but will the MoCo’s foray into ebikes right the ship? At this point it’s common knowledge that things in recent.

That kind of knowledgeable staff is going to be critical for the success of a bike that's already generating quite a bit of controversy and doubt thanks to its stratospheric (for a motorcycle) price tag. There are cheaper electric bikes out there, so convincing people that what they really need is an electric Harley-Davidson is going to take some skill.

Roadshow spoke to Los Angeles area dealer Bartels' Harley-Davidson about the lead-up to the launch of Livewire, and Sales Manager Andrew Koga confirmed that the dealer's employees had been going through additional training for the bike and that the dealer had already received several deposits in advance of the Livewire's release.

The sheer amount of time and money that Harley-Davidson has invested in the Livewire, coupled with the brand's increasing lack of relevance to younger (read: not baby-boomer) riders means that a lot is riding on the success of this new electric Hail Mary.

Harley-Davidson didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.
