Harley-Davidson spun off its electric motorcycle operations into a dedicated EV brand last year with its big LiveWire launch.
LiveWire inherited the LiveWire One electric motorcycle from Harley, which made LiveWire’s second model its first to actually be developed under the new nameplate. The LiveWire S2 Del Mar launch was exciting for the company, but news that the Launch Edition of the S2 Del Mar sold out in 18 minutes was even more exciting for the industry.
The bike is expected to begin making deliveries early this year, though I got an early test ride on the bike this autumn to see how the S2 Del Mar performs.
The bike has nearly the same acceleration as its big brother. With a 0-60 mph time of around 3.1 seconds, it is quick off the line.
The production S2 Del Mar will deliver immediately after the Launch Edition, which sold out this past May in 18 minutes.
Priority delivery will be given to customers with confirmed reservations, which can be placed now at livewire.com for expected delivery in the spring of 2023.
The Del Mar Launch Edition models will feature 3 unique colors; Pacific Gray, Nightfall Blue, and Asphalt Black at an MSRP of $16,999.
Performance highlights include expected outcomes at production of output of 80 horsepower (59.6 kW), 184 ft-lb of torque, 75 minute 20%-80% recharge time using L2, and 431 pounds of weight, delivering projected 0-to-60 mph times of 3.1 seconds.
Del Mar range in city riding is targeted to be 110 miles.
