MILWAUKEE -- Harley-Davidson gave riders on Wednesday, Aug. 21 the opportunity try out its new all-electric motorcycle, LiveWire.
Demo rides are being run at the Harley-Davidson Museum on Canal Street.
"It's totally different," said Paul James, marketing channels manager for Harley-Davidson. "It's unique. There's no shifting. There's no clutch. So it's like, twist and go."
The LiveWire can reach a speed of 60 miles an hour in less than three seconds. It also has a whole suite of electronics on it that help you manage the motorcycle in different conditions.
So what kind of response is Harley-Davidson getting after riders experience LiveWire for the first time?
"When you ride LiveWire and you experience that pure adrenaline and acceleration, it's mind-bending," James said.
LiveWire will retail for $29,799 and is available for sale. Harley-Davidson has indicated more all-electric motorcycles are in the works.
