After presenting it over a year ago, Harley Davidson finally revealed the full specs of its LiveWire S2 Del Mar electric motorcycle. Smaller and nimbler than the LiveWire One, this S2 is even faster than expected, with a 0-100 km/hour of only 3,0 seconds.
It’s powered by a 63 kW (84 hp) electric motor fed in electrons by a 10,5-kWh battery. It gives it a combined range of 111 km. The LiveWire S2 Del Mar will start from €18 690, and bookings open on October 25th.
Over a year ago, Harley Davidson unveiled its future S2 Del Mar model. In addition, the Milwaukee-based manufacturer announced that LiveWire was no longer a model designation but a real sub-brand. This further indicates that Harley plans on growing its electric motorcycle division, which spun from the brand’s internal e-motorcycle development.
The LiveWire S2 Del Mar electric motorcycle now presents itself with its full specs, and it turns out to be faster and more powerful than previously expected. The motorcycle is powered by a 63 kW (84 hp) and 263 Nm of torque electric motor at its base. This performs well, judging by its 0-100 km/hour, dealt with in only 3,0 seconds, and its top speed of 163 km/hour.
The 10,5-kWh battery, part of the Del Mar’s architecture, provides electricity for a combined range of 111 km. However, LiveWire talks of an 181 km city range. S2’s battery can get from 20 to 80 % in 78 minutes on a Level 2 charger. Using Level 1, the typical household socket, a full charge will take over eight hours.
More expensive than expected
The S2 Del Mar sits at a crossroads for LiveWire. It’s the brand’s second electric motorcycle, and it comes under the LiveWire One, the current flagship. Aimed at a younger type of buyers, it was supposed to be priced at less than 15 000 euros when unveiled a year ago.
The story is slightly different today as prices have risen due to inflation. At €18 690 (France), the LiveWire S2 Del Mar is still cheaper by more than €6 500 than the LiveWire One. Reservations will open tomorrow, October 25th.
