Now that we've all had a good look at the Harley LiveWire (if you haven't, CLICK HERE for a full photo gallery), it's time to talk about it's design, color scheme, etc. Share your thoughts, opinions, and suggestions on it below!

I just like how the frame is very exoskeleton like. That is the case with other bikes too, but this one seems a touch more modern or even futuristic.

Another nice thing is that you won't even have to buy a fender eliminator kit for this bike since the plate isn't hanging off the back of the seat.

From Wikipedia:

Aermacchi was an Italian aircraft manufacturer. Formerly known as Aeronautica Macchi, the company was founded in 1912 by Giulio Macchi at Varese in north-western Lombardy. With a factory located on the shores of Lake Varese, the firm originally manufactured seaplanes.

After the Second World War, the company began producing motorcycles as a way to fill the post-war need for cheap, efficient transportation. In 1960, US business Harley Davidson motorcycles purchased 50% of Aermacchi's motorcycle division.

The remaining motorcycle holdings were sold in 1974 to AMF-Harley Davidson, with motorcycles continuing to be made at Varese. The business was sold to Cagiva in 1978.

What's in a name anyway? It is both meaningless and everything.

But Italian design has always been awesome. Harley could learn a thing or two from them though Harley tries to be American through and through.
