I understand that this is their first time going into the Electric Bike market and they have R & D to pay for but they are definitely being greedy and hoping that rich hipsters will buy these things. I would have considered it if the price was better and I could take advantage of tax credits for buying an electric vehicle.

Considering H-Ds first playmate on Livewire went bankrupt, how much cost did H-D really pay? Even if they did, can't make sales if the target customers can't afford it.

Price is only a small part it has to be good.

You could argue the same point on price between a tesla and a prius. There both just electric cars in the end, but I know which one I'd have.

One of the benefits of being a registered business...releases like this

The just under 30k we covered. The 110 mile range seems a bit short for the price though. Plus under what conditions did they get that?
'But how does it sound? “The H-D Revelation electric powertrain produces minimal vibration, heat, and noise, all of which enhance rider comfort. The LiveWire model is designed to produce a new signature Harley-Davidson sound as it accelerates and gains speed. This new futuristic sound represents the smooth, electric power of the LiveWire motorcycle.”'

I am interested in this "futuristic sound" they mention in the article, and how much it cost to R&D that noise.

Hahaha! Well, you and I both ride the brand and know the quality so I suspect it is this...

Pricing like this is why I consider just building my own Electric bike out of old frames and new batteries. The Zero isn't particularly cheap either. We need more cheap, honest EVs
