The LiveWire motorcycle is powered by a H-D Revelation permanent-magnet electric motor rated at 105 horsepower (78kW) and producing 86 ft. lbs. of torque.
The LiveWire motorcycle is convenient to own because many of the routine maintenance items required of a motorcycle powered by an internal combustion engine are eliminated: there’s no engine oil to change, and no spark plugs, air filter or primary drive to service. Electric power also eliminates maintenance issues associated with ethanol gasoline and off-season storage. The LiveWire motorcycle does require inspection or service of some mechanical and consumable items, such as the drive belt tension, brake fluid and brake pads, and tires, at recommended intervals and pre-ride.
