You would have heard about the Revolt electric bikes in India but do you know which was the first manufacturer to launch electric bikes in India? Well, it was Harley Davidson and back in August 2019, they unveiled their first electric bike in India. It is known as LiveWire and the bike is expected to be commercially available in mid 2020. Let us learn more about this bike now.

Specifications, Accessories, and Features

The bike has the traditional muscular design and the battery pack is massive. The motor looks more like an engine in the bike and hence you do not feel anything strange about the bike.
