The new Harley-Davidson’s electric motorcycle can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in three seconds

Its specifications indicate a 43-mile sustained highway range at 70 mph and a combined range

LiveWire, the electric division of Harley-Davidson, has unveiled its S2 Del Mar electric motorcycle. The bike will cost $15,499 and will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.0 seconds. Additionally, it reaches a top speed of 103 mph, powered by 84 horsepower (63 kW).

It was announced earlier in the year that the company would release initial specifications for the S2 Del Mar, but the official details have exceeded certain expectations. A single charge of LiveWire’s electric bike will let you ride 113 miles in the city, as opposed to 110 miles originally claimed. In addition, the acceleration from zero to 60 mph takes just 3.0 seconds instead of the originally advertised 3.1 seconds.

While the weight of the S2 Del Mar is slightly higher than originally expected, it is now listed at 436 lbs in running order, compared with the 431 lbs previously announced by LiveWire in April. A Level 2 charge takes 78 minutes, slightly longer than the initial 75 minutes, allowing the battery to be charged from 20 percent to 80 percent. Unfortunately, the bike still lacks fast charging capabilities and is limited to Level 1 and Level 2 charging options. It’s important to note that the S2 Del Mar is designed more as a commuter motorcycle rather than a long-distance cruiser. Its specifications indicate a 43-mile sustained highway range at 70 mph and a combined range (highway/city) of 62 miles at 70 mph.

The motorcycle offers Over-The-Air (OTA) updates, meaning it can receive continuous enhancements and upgrades as the company develops them. This ensures a seamless and convenient experience for riders, allowing them to stay up-to-date with the latest improvements while they enjoy their journey.

Equipped with a four-inch round screen, the bike allows seamless connectivity with smartphones via USB-C. Additionally, it supports app-based navigation, providing riders with easy access to helpful navigation features.

Despite the impressive features and capabilities, the S2 Del Mar maintains its previously announced price of $15,499. While the exact release date remains unknown, LiveWire had initially aimed for a US launch in July, and with the specifications now revealed, the official release might not be too far off.
