Harley-Davidson showed off its first-ever electric motorcycle at CES 2019 in Las Vegas. The ‘twist-and-go’ bike ditches the traditional shifters and chirps out a turbine-like whir in lieu of the characteristic rumble but with its ease of use, swift acceleration, and agile handling, the firm is hoping to win over new riders and long-time Harley owners alike. Called LiveWire, Harley’s first EV can hit a top speed of around 120 miles per hour and achieves a range of 110 miles of mixed urban and highway driving. The bike can go from 0 to 60mph in 3.5 seconds, Harley-Davidson says. Pre-orders for the $29,799 vehicle are now open in the US, and it should begin shipping by fall 2019.
