It is a technology that provides cellular connectivity that can link a LiveWire™ owner with their motorcycle through their smart phone using the latest version of the Harley‑Davidson™ App.
H-D™ Connect allows owners to connect remotely to their LiveWire™ motorcycle and allows for viewing of key vehicle health information such as battery charge status. It will also send you security alerts if your bike has been bumped, tampered with or moved. GPS-enabled stolen vehicle tracking provides peace of mind. H‑D™ Connect also tells you the location of your parked motorcycle on a map, sends you automated reminders about upcoming vehicle service and a charge station locator.
H-D™ Connect will be free for the first year. After that, there will be a subscription fee.
Without the subscription that is required to maintain a cellular service, owners will not be able to take advantage of any of the remote status and security features.
Cellular service is required for the H‑D™ Connect Service related capabilities to function. Generally, H‑D™ Connect will continue to function in areas with lower cellular service quality coverage such as 3G areas.
Vehicle usage data (anonymized where required) will be collected to improve overall vehicle quality and the rider’s experience. Riders will be able to opt out of the service. Detailed data collection and privacy information will be available at the time of service launch.
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.
