Harley-Davidson Street and LiveWire Event

Harley-Davidson Street and LiveWire Event

March 27, 2015
Written by: Irene Wasilewski

Harley-Davidson is the iconic motorcycle company started in 1903 and has a long history of innovation. They employ over 6400 employees with corporate headquarters in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is a global company with seven manufacturing plants in countries such as Brazil and India. They are a top seller in new markets such as young adults, women, African Americans and Hispanics. Harley-Davidson recently launched two new motorcycle models – Street and LiveWire.
The Street is a new model meant for urban environments and young and new riders. It has a short wheel base, is nimble and easy to turn. It has a low, smooth, linear power.
It was launched in two facilities at the same time – in Bawal, India and Kansas City, USA.
The LiveWire is Harley-Davidson’s first electric motorcycle. Prototypes are currently touring through the USA. This model had a 30% decrease in the time to market versus other models. LiveWire had a focus on engineering and styling. Its frame boasts two ‘firsts’ for Harley-Davidson – it is cast aluminum and at only 14 pounds, it is the lightest frame they have ever built. Yet LiveWire maintains the look, sound and feel that are tenets for Harley-Davidson. It can go from 0-60 mph in less than 40 seconds.
The event was a screening of a presentation originally done for the SAE Milwaukee chapter held at the University of Manitoba.
