They have now announced it is available for pre-order from today starting at $A49,995 ($NZD53,995), yet in the US it sells for $US29,799 which is about $A43,000.
That makes it more expensive than all but the Harley CVO range and Trike Glide Ultra Classic. It is more expensive than the feature-laden Ultra Limited tourer at $A41,495 ride away and Freewheeler Trike at $45,995.
I rode the LiveWire last year in Portland, Oregon, at the world media launch.
