Recently I viewed a YouTube video posted by a regular livewire one owner (he does very good videos that are very informative)
In his video he states that Harley will not be further developing the battery packs for the Livewire or Livewire One bikes because of the cost of the battery packs and it being a single source provider. (Toshiba if I recall)
If there is no future development for this battery system should we all have concerns about the value of our bikes taking a plunge.
I can't complain much since I bought mine used last fall and it only had 156 km on it if I recall and I thought only has 330 km on it now. I also got it at a reasonable price of $22,000 Canadian plus taxes rather than the $39,000 plus taxes that it originally sold for.
I love the bike and it is a joy to ride but seeing this video does concern me.
I was hoping that in the next few years Harley would develop a new battery and software that would increase the range and also speed up charging at home or on the road.
My HD Livewire in Orange Fuse is the only electric bike I like the look of. (I like all colours of HD Livewire bikes a as well as the Livewire One bikes.
I just don't like the looks of other electrics and was hoping that as time went on I could update the bike I have rather than get a new one
Any thoughts on this subject.
