Harley-Davidson Spruces Up The LiveWire Spec Sheet

Harley-Davidson Spruces Up The LiveWire Spec Sheet Thought you knew everything already? Think again! I think Harley-Davidson missed its place in the spotlight. Since the beginning of the week, the company has treated us to no less than three updates from the company. So, what’s up Harley? After unveiling the new Electra Glide Standard, a stripped down version of it famous fully clad tourer, and announcing the purchase of push bike company StaCyc, we’re now told that there’s more to the LiveWire that we didn’t know. Sit around kids.

Legendary American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson has been struggling as of late, and efforts to expand the brand's appeal both home and abroad are well underway to staunch losses and solidify the company's future. Here in the US, that means taking a chance on new products in new segments like the forthcoming Livewire all-electric cruiser. In other emerging markets, that likely means a low-cost, high-volume sub-500cc model. That's according to reports out of Asia, including Outlook India and Zigwheels.

Shockingly, the new bike, which is expected to go on sale in 2020, could be as inexpensive as $4,000 in Asian markets like India. However, it's highly unlikely Harley-Davidson would bring such a bike to North America. In the States, the company's least expensive offering is the Street 500 (shown below), which starts at $6,899 (before options and delivery fees). The lion's share of H-D's bikes are substantially more expensive.

Harley-Davidson is targeting the “next generation of riders” with electric bikes for kids

Harley-Davidson is targeting the “next generation of riders” with electric bikes for kids Harley is buying StaCyc, a company that makes electric bikes for kids. If that seems off-brand, it's because Harley is trying to expand its brand. The company has struggled to attract customers for its gas-guzzling “hogs” beyond Baby Boomer diehards, while also suffering from tariffs imposed by the EU in retaliation for duties introduced by the Trump administration. Harley expects to ship as few as 217,000 motorcycles in 2019, which would be the lowest total in eight years. It shipped 229,000 worldwide last year.

The new motorcycle, which is rumored to be shown at the 2019 EICMA show in November, may be under joint development with a motorcycle manufacturer in India. Other competing brands, including BMW Motorrad and KTM have had success going the domestic-partnership route.

Zigwheels speculates that a fuel-injected air- and oil-cooled V-twin engine is likely to power the bike, and it's possible that the model could use a frame based on the Street 750, which is already manufactured in India. Displacements between 250cc and 500cc have been mooted.

Harley-Davidson officials did not immediately respond to Roadshow's request for comment on this story.

Harley-Davidson's outlook is brighter for now, thanks to Asia sales, report says.
HD's financial troubles and lack of success in attracting younger riders has proven to be a steep hill to climb here in the US, but its fortunes might be improving.
