Electric vehicles are definitely a fad, and for good reason. After Tesla launched its iconic range of electric vehicles, several startups sprung up, aiming to capture as large a share of the growing market as possible. In addition to startups, various established automotive giants such as Kia, BMW, Audi, etc. also launched their own electric cars. Joining the list of companies that launched electric vehicles is the iconic American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson. Established, over a century ago in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this rollout could mark a turning point for the legendary motorcycle maker, which enjoys a loyal fan base all across the globe.
However, the brand has struggled for a few years, with sales not looking encouraging. The company is hoping that their very first electric bike, dubbed the LiveWire will prove to be a turnaround factor and improve the health of the struggling icon. The LiveWire will be powered by two batteries, the primary battery, made of lithium-ion cells and a smaller lithium-ion battery to power the lights, horn, and a display. Yes, a display that will provide Bluetooth connectivity, navigation, music and so on.
It is high time people make the switch to electric vehicles, given the fact that pollution levels are edging towards a critical level, surpassing which, the environment will have crossed a tipping point that would result in permanent, irreparable damage.
