Harley-Davidson’s LiveWire teases electric motorcycle launch for next week


LiveWire, the all-electric motorcycle brand spun off from a division of Harley-Davidson, is teasing the launch of an all-new bike next week called the Del Mar. Electrek notes that this is a mid-weight bike, making it a more accessible alternative to last year’s LiveWire One. Along with announcing the date, LiveWire also released a short trailer, which appears to show the rear of the upcoming bike at 0:06.

The Del Mar should be a more accessible motorcycle in the company’s lineup, priced below the $21,999 LiveWire One. Moto.com reports that the Del Mar will be built around LiveWire’s Arrow platform, which includes a battery, electronics and motor, in a single unit around which the company can then build various bikes. The Del Mar is expected to use the S2 version of the platform, designed for mid-weight motorcycles. However, Arrow is designed to be scalable, and future releases are expected to include a lightweight S3 and heavyweight S4 design.

The announcement comes as LiveWire is in the process of going public under a SPAC deal. Last December, Harley-Davidson announced that LiveWire would merge with special acquisition company (SPAC) AEA-Bridges Impact Corporation, as well as Taiwan-based scooter manufacturer Kymco. Late last month, Harley-Davidson said the merger was on track to close in mid-2022.
