Harley-Davidson's "new" #LiveWire roll-out ae EICMA left more questions than answers. Range and recharge times still TBD.

Here is what The Motor Company did disclose (and looks like dealers are on the hook for the public charging stations at their stores):

"The LiveWire motorcycle features a RESS (Rechargeable Energy Storage System, or the main battery) composed of lithium-ion cells surrounded by a finned, cast-aluminum housing. The LiveWire motorcycle is also equipped with a small 12-volt lithium-ion battery that powers the lights, controls, horn and instrument display.

Charging can be completed using the on-board Level 1 charger that plugs into a standard household outlet with a power cord that stores below the motorcycle seat. LiveWire can also be charged with a Level 2 or Level 3, DC Fast Charge (DCFC), through a SAE J1772 connector, (USA), or CCS2 – IEC type 2 charging connector in international markets.

All Harley-Davidson dealers who sell the LiveWire motorcycle will offer a public charging station with DCFC."
