2021 LiveWire One Thrills Like Only an Electric Motorcycle Can | MotorBiscuit

The Serial 1 e-bikes aren’t the only new two-wheeled EVs Harley-Davidson is releasing in 2021. This year, Harley-Davidson also has an updated version of its sole electric motorcycle, the LiveWire. Only now, because LiveWire is technically a sub-brand, it has a new name: the LiveWire One. Recently, I got to ride it at the 2021 International Motorcycle Show in Chicago. And in the process, I experienced that riding an electric motorcycle brings some distinct delights.

What makes the 2021 LiveWire One different than the 2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire?

At first glance, the 2021 LiveWire One looks almost identical to the 2020 Harley-Davidson LiveWire. They have the same horsepower, torque, claimed range, and roughly identical 0-60 mph times. Both electric Harley motorcycles also have the same 45° maximum lean angle. And like the ‘original’ LiveWire, the 2021 One has a 110-mph top speed.
