CES 2019 - Harley-Davidson has just unveiled its new LiveWire electric motorcycle with pre-orders opening up ahead of its release in August, where it will cost $29,799 - not too bad considering its the first electric motorbike from the company famous for motorcycles.

The new LiveWire has some wicked takeoff speeds where it will go 0-60MPH in 3.5 seconds, and it'll do so with a "futuristic" sound. Harley-Davison is bringing bikes into 2019 with LTE connectivity inside of the LiveWire that will let you remotely check on your bike, retrieve service numbers, and you'll be able to see if someone is trying to hijack your ride. If someone does, don't worry - it can be tracked with its built-in GPS.

 

Harley-Davidson says its new electric motorbike is good for around 110 miles of urban riding, but there are other bikes from Zero Motorcycles that push further up to 163 miles riding around the city. The LiveWire takes its own market with its power, tech (especially LTE) and super-styled looks.
