The LiveWire One starts at $21,999 without destination, which the company did not disclose. In comparison, the Harley-Davidson LiveWire starts at $29,799 without destination. So the One gets a nearly $8,000 discount.
Despite the price drop, the One doesn’t really lose anything except the Harley version’s orange or yellow colors – the One is only available in white or black. Otherwise you get the same 15.5-kWh battery pack that delivers around 146 miles of range in the city and 70 on the highway. It has the same electric motor making 105 horsepower and 86 pound-feet of torque. It has the same chassis and look. It still supports DC fast charging that allows for an 80% charge in 45 minutes or a 100% charge in an hour.
So unless you really have to have those paint colors, the LiveWire One looks like it will be the best way into an electric Harley, for now … as long as you live in California, New York or Texas, which are the first three states that will get this new electric bike. We expect wider availability will follow.
