Project LiveWire, the Experience Tour is officially coming to San Diego Harley-Davidson July 24th-July 26th! Visit project.harley-davidson.com for more information, or stop in to our Morena Blvd location and ENTER TO WIN a test ride on this exciting new prototype electric Harley-Davidson! We are very excited to be a part of this new innovation that Harley has to offer and hope that you can make it down to our Morena Blvd dealership and check it out for yourself! This is definitely an experience you do not want to miss.
This tour of the LiveWire will give the consumers a chance to give Harley-Davidson feedback on this new model. Harley-Davidson plans to take its prototype electric motorcycle to more than 30 cities over the next few months. Sometime after that, the company will decide whether to put LiveWire on the market. Ben Lund, a leader of the project, says he hopes the prototype bike shows off Harley’s technology skills and begins to reach out to a younger, more urban potential customer base. Even though the sound isn’t as loud as other Harleys, the extreme instant power it has makes it a very desirable product. Unusually for an electric motorcycle (and perhaps uniquely), the motor is mounted under the frame. A bevel gear changes the direction of rotation 90° to drive a gilmer belt that turns the rear wheel. The same bevel gear gives the drive train a unique whirring sound, compared to the sound of a jet turbine.
So clear your schedule one of the days from July 24th- 26th and come on down to SDHD and check out this great new innovation! This tour will only come through San Diego once so don’t miss out on this opportunity. See you all then!
