Information looks great so far. Its precisely what we need to see along with actual feedback from riding these. A key example being this one where the Livewire was compared to the Eva 107 and Zero SR/F. Specs have been included as well, which might help confirm your chart.

I found that a terrible comparison, lots of assumptions and misleading information. Wish the author had used my chart. Hopefully future comparisons will get better.

Here's the thing, the Harley is not bad at all. They have a good product, with some odd first-year decisions (no L2 charging, slow CCS charging), but the product itself seems very solid.

But a clear good comparison is key to being able to proper place it and sell it. I still haven't found anyone who can answer if the Livewire has a long-term battery storage mode like the SR/F and Energica have. Also trying to figure out the amount of max regen it offers. Testing the SR/F and Energica side by side, we found that 100% regen on the Zero is the same as LOW regen on the Energica. Giving the Energica two additional regen levels above the Zero. That matters for cornering, as the regen is basically a virtual down-shift (otherwise you are burning your rear brake into every corner).

Curtiss Psyche vs Livewire



As someone that loves HD's, even with the Livewire being a big departure from traditional HD's, i'm biased in favor of the Livewire.

This is some great information Rick! Thank you so much for putting this together. I wonder if HD will adjust the pricing in the future to better position it against Energica and Zero.
