When you think of a Harley, you think of tattoos and ripped denim jackets. Masculinity. Perhaps it’s most perfectly captured in the deafening grumble you get when you start one up. Taking a step toward the future and away from the past, the iconic brand has just announced an electric bike. Despite the weight of a battery, the LiveWire still boasts a 0-60 time of under 4 seconds and a top speed of just over 90 mph. As far as charging goes, it takes between 3 and 4 hours to get juiced up and should get about 53 miles on a charge (good for city slickers but not many others yet). And while it clearly doesn’t look like a Harley of yore, it has an aesthetic leg up on many other electrics.
