Harley-Davidson rolls out “LiveWire” electric motorcycles

News

MILWAUKEE  (WTMJ) — Lucky riders are getting their first chance to try out Harley-Davidson’s new LiveWire electric motorcycle this week in Milwaukee.

The LiveWire doesn’t sound like a typical Harley.

“I missed the sound a little bit. When you start it you don’t hear anything,” Johanna Muller said after taking a test drive.

And the LiveWire is a little sleeker too, but when asked about taking it for a spin, Muller, only had one word.

“Wow, just wow,” she said.

Muller lives in Germany and has owned a Harley dealership for 26 years. She originally traveled to Milwaukee for a dealer show, but when she learned of a chance to ride the LiveWire, she couldn’t pass that up.

“It’s way different. I think you can’t compare it. It’s LiveWire, it’s a different thing, but it’s great,” she said.
