Samsung SDI, the battery manufacturing subsidiary of Samsung, announced that it has signed a deal to provide battery-pack for Harley-Davidson’s first electric motorcycle “LiveWire”, unveiled during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019 in Las Vegas.
Harley-Davidson’s first electric motorcycle began with the project LiveWire in 2014, and after four years of collaboration with Samsung SDI, it came out as the LiveWire Motorcycle.
The electric motorcycle runs on a battery pack, comprised of lithium-ion cells made by Samsung SDI and can go up to 110 miles.
“LiveWire can do zero to 60 km/h with the reaching time of 3.5 seconds, which enhances connectivity from rider to a motorcycle, as well as to location tracking. It also features a distinctive high-speed driving sound from the engine sound” said the battery maker.
Harley Davidson LiveWire will be on showcase during CES that runs through Friday and accept preorders during the event with scheduled shipping in the fall.
