12 things I love (and hate) about the Harley-Davidson LiveWire

Just call me Ewan

I think it's fair to say I've probably done more miles on Harley-Davidson's all-electric LiveWire than any other UK journo. I've racked up more than 1,000 miles on them so far, and that means I've run the full gamut of what you can expect should you buy one.

It's an interesting – and attention-grabbing – bike, insofar that it does some unexpected things exceptionally well, and a few others less so. Join me in a motorway service station with a few RAF helicopters while I quickly run through the things I love and hate about it.

  • Personally, I don’t think I would ever buy an electric bike. I just like the Original Harley V-twin roar. However, I do think that the electric bike market needs expanding. It’s certainly a more grown-up option than an electric Razor brand scooter.

  • I like the looks, I like the instant power delivery, I don't mind the weight, and the range is perfectly acceptable to my current routine. Thing is...this bike is a whole £29,000...that is about as much as 2 whole BMW R1250GSs or nearly 2 S1000RRs...I know there's no similarity between the bikes what so ever but I just brought them up because they are two of the more "well known" ones. That, I think, is way too much for a gimmick-y gadget, a great and fun one, but still more for "show-off" than to really use thoroughly.

  • The range is a perfect fit for my geriatric bladder but would my big potato prostate be up to the jarring, is there arousal to report Tim? How does the weight compare to other bikes??

    My rule of 'keeps thumb', is if I found it dead in a ditch in thirty years time would I drag it home?

    Thumb twitched yes, so it's all good.

  • Personally 12 stops in 3 months isn't very different to how many times you pullup to a petrol station? Couldn't even tell you how many times I've been to a petrol station in 3 months lol the range at top speed is a genuine flaw mate if they can make the miles March the speed and range I'm all for it
