Central to the technology driving the LiveWire is an Electronic Chassis Control (ECC) system.
It uses cornering ABS, traction control and Drag-Torque Slip Control System to “monitor and manage front and rear brake torque as well as motor torque to the rear wheel to enhance rider control and balance vehicle performance across diverse riding environments”.
In other words, it keeps the wheels on the ground and prevents slides.
In some markets, the LiveWire has the H-D Connect mobile app that uses an LTE-enabled Telematics Control Unit and cloud services to collect data and provide the rider with information about their bike such as battery charge status and available range, so long as you have mobile signal. It will also show riders where they can recharge and guide them there.
The app includes alerts riders if someone is trying to steal their bike and uses GPS to track it if it has been taken.
Riders will also get service reminders and other vehicle care notifications.
LiveWire has a fully adjustable Showa Balanced Free Rear Cushion-lite mono rear shock and Showa Separate Function Big Piston forks.
It comes with Brembo monoblock front brake calipers on dual 300mm discs.
