Advanced Riding Technology System

The LiveWire™ model is equipped with an Electronic Chassis Control (ECC) system. The separate functions of ECC work together to give the rider more confidence and control in less-than-ideal situations. The Electronic Chassis Control (ECC) system manages cornering-enhanced Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Traction Control System (TCS) and Drag-Torque Slip Control System (DSCS) by modulating torque available at the rear wheel. It combines electronic controls and hydraulics where required, utilizing the latest six-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) and ABS sensor technology.

How easy is it to maintain LiveWire™?

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.
