The pre-order availability announced and the price of electric motorcycle Livewire in the US is about Rs 21 lakh ($29,799) yes it is an expensive one!
If it goes on sale in India, the price can be expected to be more than in the US. Price can be expected to have around Rs 32-35 lakh (ex-showroom, India), that’s too expensive to afford.
The company is not expecting to sell it in large numbers. In fact, this product could be the halo product from which Harley will enter into the electric two-wheeler space.
The Company is into the making of petrol-powered products but the company has said that the focus towards electric mobility is now important and it will make more affordable models in the coming years.
