They cut the price dramatically, down to $21,999, and taken the Harley name off the tank. Still the same otherwise meaning no true L2 charging and lack of real luggage to carry anything. Though Harley's CEO used a fair dose of hyperbole when he said there was no market for a three to four hundred mile range tour bike, well none of their current bikes can put that many miles down before they have to gas up.

I think there is no market for a Har(d)ley Electric! :3:

From the reviews I read, it is probably the best of all the electrics.

For what that's worth.

Two local HD dealerships finally ended up selling their one Livewire each to one of their salesmen probably at a huge markdown.

Who is the target customer for these things? Heavy, not a lot of range, and expensive. Not a good touring bike, not a great city bike. I think it’s good that HD is trying to do things like this, but the market for this bike has to be tiny.

posers who want to show off at their local bar or coffee shop?

 

What I found hilarious is their CEO exaggerating what people would expect from a touring EV motorcycle so he could justify not making one, namely he claimed people would not accept one with less than three hundred miles range between charge which pretty much ignores man tour models don't crack 250 miles per tank and that many riders do stop a bit more
