How far can you ride an electric Harley Davidson before sunset?

Motorcycles are fantastic machines for grand touring, but what happens when you replace the internal combustion engine with an electric powertrain? Tim - starting in the south of England - has set himself the challenge of travelling as far as he possibly can before the sun sets using a Harley Davidson Livewire, the brand's first electric motorcycle. This is what went down...

@Si Raff yeah 4 hours if you go 71 flat out, and in the UK you wont get away with that. Ridiculous but true. Even the motorways have been changed to 50mph for miles in the west country 😭

Only thing bad was you showed me pork pie eating when I haven't got one. Otherwise top marks. 287 miles in a day though? Thats probably about 4 hours on a petrol bike.

What I learned: Electrics can work, But their useless if you don't have time to monkey around getting a recharge every hour('s) or two.

Riding a motorcycle is all about unwinding and being stress free, all searching for the next charge point followed by frustration and swearing because the the charger is not working kind of defeats the object of a joyful stress free road trip on a motorcycle. I’ll stick with my combustion engine for now 👍

I have to say, a Japanese Yamaha MT-07 easily has 10x the character, nearly double the range, 1/50th the refuel time, 25 mph higher top speed, $22,100 less cost (USD), and so much hooliganism than the HD Liverwire ever will have. Yay to petrol!

Does this factor in the size of the boombox needed to make all the noise? That's gotta be a big draw on the batteries.

The Harley and Rivian trucks did well on Long Way Up. They did have to charge by Diesel generators cos of low output household outlets. Also, do yal really not wear masks in crowded spaces in public? Here S.Africa it has become so normal I cringe a bit seeing your citizens walking around unmasked in a town centre 🙈

Nice bike, but there is just one thing missing from that that bike: Noise. A bike always needs to be heard in a tunnel.

So you can make a day trip of it. Its just not convenient, unless you actually have somewhere to be. But if you are tourist, its hardly an imposition at all.

Nice video, thanks. What actually scares me is how silent the bike is. Cars already ignore bikers and it's a dangerous life, but if we remove the sound (one of the only things capable to attract attention), it starts to be really scary. At least for me.

Wholly impractical range for anything but short range commuting. You’re not really enjoying a bike ride or scenery, you are more accurately managing the transport of an inadequate battery system from one charge station to another. And unless you have lots of spare time to stay with your bike while it’s charging, or it’s in a dead safe area, then the charging process will end up dominating your day. Long way up barely got 70 miles in the cold too. No thanks. HD, come back to us when you’ve got a bike that has comparable range and refuel time to an ICE bike. Say 300 km and a 10 minute charge. As it is IMHO this bike is an expensive joke for virtue signallers.

All those broken chargers does not make me even contemplate an electric bike. I fuel my Indian and ride away and eat when I'm hungry not while I wait 45 minute per refuel NOTE : Range was not mentioned for people outside of UK we have no concept of distance between your recharges. One would think this was left out on purpose for some reason. As range anxiety on electric vehicles is always a problem. Especially bikes that are weight constrained. Strange I would think Harley Davidson didn't want it mentioned. NO Drivetribe would never bow to such outside influence or would they.
GingerPiston преди 11 дни
287 miles. Oh dear. How long were you actually riding for, how long did you spend trying to find a working charger, and how long did you spend charging?

Great video guys. I would like to know how much regenerative braking supplemented the pre departure range. Constant speed, like a dual carriageway, is the electric vehicles nemesis, virtually no regen. At night the range has to be compromised by lighting too. One last thing, these Electric Hogs are freaking xpnsv.

I rode one of these a few months back and it was a lot of fun. IMO it needs two things tp make it better. 1st, they need to make it available in cruiser style like the softail. 2nd, It needs sound effects. I'm thinking it should sound like the speeder bikes from Star Wars (it almost does anyway), or a TIE fighter! LOL. Some folks have enough difficulty seeing us motorcyclists as it is, making us silent could just make it worse.

I like the concept but I dont like the thought of leaving my motorcycle to charge and them coming back to find it nicked. If thieves want something, there is no equipment thatll stop them from getting it

1- How far would a petrol bike reach for the same time? vs. 2- What were your charging costs? and 3- how much does it cost to buy one? I mean come on so-called "drive tribe"! we all know that electric bikes work, there are literally hundreds of channels showing this for EVs and bikes - you need to be a bit more useful in your videos.

Ah yes, to become an owner of an EV because there isn't enough anxiety in life already, add on that of always worrying about finding a charging spot before you're left on the side of the road. I can guarantee Ewan McGregor didn't have this worry as he undoubtedly had an off camera support vehicle equipped with a diesel powered portable charging point.

That was a real anticlimax. Just as you head off at the start on the bike, the music starts- the bike has zero soul. I ride a Sportster in crazy city traffic in Phnom Penh, but with the music of a proper engine. Add on the dearth of charging stations, and the wait time, I just can’t see this taking off just yet. For me electric vehicles need interchangeable batteries that are as easy as 123 to pull up, change, ride off. The charging station recharges empty batteries for the next customer, etc. Still, making your own music, meh.. :)
