Dubbed the Pan America 1250, the machine will be powered by what is certain to be an all-new engine.

H-D have stated that the machine will be expected some time in 2020 alongside a new custom model and also a quite handsome looking 975cc Streetfighter model.

We first rode the LiveWire prototype some years ago and came away quite enthusiastic about the new machine which thanks to a strategically straight-cut gear drive was the first electric machine to actually sound good! It would have come a long way since we rode it those years ago and might just be about the most exciting thing Harley has ever done.

Harley have confirmed the LiveWire will go on sale early in 2019.

Harley have also indicated that they have a range of small electric motorcycles under development, some of which appear to be more bicycle like than motorcycle. This makes sense as no licence would be required in most jurisdictions for low powered machines that have more common with bicycles than motorcycles.

Harley also shed more light on their small-displacement (250cc to 500cc) motorcycle for Asia emerging markets through a planned strategic alliance with a manufacturer in Asia.

This new product and broader distribution is intended to fuel Harley-Davidson’s customer access and growth in India, one of the largest, fastest growing markets in the world, and other Asia markets.

Probably the sort of thing they should have done ten years ago. They are still not in any hurry. The adventure model due in 2020 I see. Probably around the time Honda finally adds cruise control to the AT. 🙂
