Now we know the range is not the greatest ATM, but what if Harley followed a similar model as ZERO?

for example the ZERO FX costs $9500 or $12000 depending on if you want one or two battery packs. The single pack has a range of 35 miles and the dual pack has a range of 75 miles. Sure we're not winning any distance competitions but its the idea that's relevant here.

Either the ability to buy a single, dual, even a triple battery pack OR a tiered system of Battery sizes. X is the base, Y is the middle, Z is the range topper. Almost like selling 250, 500 and 750cc bikes within the same range?

Could be cool...

I think it is a good idea to offer different tiers like you mentioned. Each battery pack would add weight to the bike, and there is only so much room on the bike for the battery packs.

A workable idea assuming HD's system is anything like Zero's. Easily changeable packs can open options of use of the LiveWire. Take Zero's courting of the police market. A department could have many more packs than cycles and have regular patrol cars drop off/ swap packs for the 'motors'.

Of course, but I'm even thinking about the possibility of engine choices at order. You can chose from a selection of Kw Capacity. 2.5 KwH, 5 KwH, 7.5 KwH for example...

It is an interesting idea to have the battery packs be replaceable. It wouldn't really change the range that much unless you put it in your backpack to bring it along, but it would go a long way to make charging more convenient. Instead of having to charge for hours, you could just take one battery that's fully charged and put it in your bike while you charge the empty one.

they're not double A's mate. Its going to take a bit more than a backpack to move these batteries about..

Although it won't be easy, it will be interesting to see what they can do to make it easier in any way. Whether this be through changable battery packs or something else.
