Harley Davidson forayed into the electric mobility space with the launch of the LiveWire electric motorcycle in 2019. Since then, LiveWire has become a separate vertical within the American motorcycle company that specifically reflects the company’s EV lineup.
LiveWire One, the first model under this spinoff brand was introduced in July last year. Now the company has revealed its next offering in the EV space which is the S2 Del Mar Edition. This new electric motorcycle is the second model under the Harley Davidson Livewire brand.
Harley Davidson LiveWire Electric S2 Del Mar Price
The price of LiveWire One is 22k US dollars i.e. around 17 lakh rupees according to Indian currency, which is very expensive. Hence there is a need to bring an affordable electric motorcycle to take the brand to the masses. When launched, the price of S2 Del Mar will be 15 thousand dollars i.e. around 8.9 lakh rupees according to Indian currency.
The battery powered motorcycle is based on a new modular Arrow EV architecture. This new platform will serve as the base for the upcoming LiveWire electric motorcycles like the S3 and S4. The S2 Del Mar is built on a monocoque frame that uses a battery with an aluminum casing as the stressed member. So the steering head, as well as the swingarm pivots, are linked to the battery pack.
Expected Specifications of Harley Davidson LiveWire Electric S2 Del Mar
The company has still not given any exact information about the motor of this electric bike. The photo shows that the swingarm pivot will pass just behind the motor pack. The S2 Del Mar is expected to feature an air-cooled setup for the battery as it is a lower end model compared to the LiveWire One. The motor given in this bike will perform like a motorcycle powered by 700cc IC engine. Talking about the speed, it can catch the speed of 0-100 kmph in just 3.5 seconds. Harley Davidson will use 21700 types of cells for the battery pack which can give a range of at least 160 km on a single charge
The bookings for the Harley Davidson LiveWire Electric S2 Del Mar Launch Edition were opened before yesterday, but the bookings had to be closed within a few minutes. The entire first lot of 100 units of the company was sold out in less than 18 minutes. There is no confirmation about whether this Harley Davidson electric motorcycle will come to India or not. This bike can debut in 2023.
