For those of you who don't know how the media world works, here's a short introduction. Manufacturers send press data, including photos, to the media with an embargo date and time, meaning the press is not allowed to publish anything until that specific date & time. It's called an "embargo". Usually the press works correctly within these "rules". But in Harley-Davidson Open link in a new window's case this is not always so. Harley PR people are very arrogant and only deal with selected members, usually the print press, and often ignore sites (like ours). Despite many attempts to approach them, they ignore us.

Now their arrogance has bitten them in their collective behinds. US site Asphalt and Rubber Open link in a new window, like us, never received any advance material from Harley-Davidson's pre-announced electric motorcycle, but Jensen did manage to get the official photos. Good on him! This is the first leak of the Livewire, and it's not an oil leak.

He speculated that the electric motorcycle will be called "Livewire". No specs, those will come later today at the official announcement, but from the many photos, this is one Harley-Davidson that could swing the electric/not-electric debate towards the electric fence (no pun intended).

The bike looks good, and if it'll ride far (the fact that it will have enormous torque goes without saying), and more importantly, if the price is right, this could be the bike that makes the electric motorcycle industry take off. Or Harley could go the Voxan/Mission/Sora route and price the bike into a stratospheric levels so that only Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise can afford it.

Hopefully they will keep it at a reasonable level. Click here to see many more photos of the electric Harley-Davidson motorcycle Open Asphaltandrubber link in a new window.

And who knows... this might be my first electric motorcycle, and it might just be my first Harley-Davidson.

UPDATE

Asphalt and Rubber have now managed to get some of the technical specs of the electric motorcycle.
