Harley-Davidson has announced their 2020 model line-up and they have added a few new bikes this year. Harley’s first electric motorcycle the Live Wire is set to be released next month with a sticker price of almost 30 thousand, which has shocked most consumers. The main goal of the electric motorcycle was to attract new, younger riders but they might be shying away with that high of a price. Gary Gastelu from Fox News says “open your check book because this thing is an absolute thrill ride”. The Live Wire will go from 0-60 mph in only 3 seconds but it will not have the rumble that Harley-Davidson’s are known for. Gastelu explains that with that price it may be hard to move these bikes but this is just the start for Harley making more electrics bikes in the future, hopefully with much less of a sting to your wallet.
As far as Harley-Davidson’s more classic models they are also adding a few new and changing up old. The Low Rider S will now be available which will focus on performance, they have enhanced this models power and handling with the classic Softail feel. It will have the Milwaukee-Eight® 114 engine and starting price of $17,999.
The Heritage Classic, a favorite among Harley-Davidson riders, will have major nostalgia with “gangter-era style and vintage details.” HD explains it would have been the bike Bonnie and Clyde would have chosen. Starting at $18,999.
For the first time ever, Harley-Davidson is introducing a CVO Tri-Glide. This bike will be fully loaded, a touring lovers dream come true! It comes with “Reflex™ Defensive Rider Systems (RDRS), a new collection of technology designed to match motorcycle performance to available traction during acceleration, deceleration and braking.” Starting at $48,999.
The Road Glide Limited will also be available, replacing the Road Glide Ultra. This bike will include new premium finishes to make your long trips as comfortable as possible. You can also upgrade to the new black finish instead of chrome. Starting at $28,299.
