Jim Federico began working at Harley-Davidson on June 2nd of this year after having spent 36 years with GM. He will now be in charge of engineering and R&D for Harley-Davidson's new Livewire electric motorcycle. His involvement in the development of the Chevrolet Volt and the Chevrolet Spark EV should really help Harley along with the project.
The Livewire has received mixed reviews from the few people who have had a chance to take it out for a spin. The 30-mile range is rather modest, but test riders have complimented the lively road stance and quick responsive throttle. Hopefully Federico will be able to bring the best out of the Livewire.
