Electric Motorcycles

Long Way Up joined forces with iconic motorcycle brand Harley-Davidson in support of the brand’s new direction towards sustainability, making this the perfect collaboration for Ewan and Charley’s 13,000-mile trip from Argentina to Los Angeles. 

The boys had the chance to ride prototype LiveWire™ electric motorcycles through the glorious and underexposed landscapes of South and Central America. Harley-Davidson modified the motorcycles to ensure they could cope with the terrain and also with longer range.


The 2020 Harley-Davidson® LiveWire™ motorcycle is an all-new, all-electric motorcycle; an exhilarating and evocative new model designed to offer the rider a high-performance motorcycling experience infused with a new level of technology, and the premium look and feel of a Harley-Davidson product. 

Propelled by the immediate torque of the H-D Revelation™ all-electric powertrain, the LiveWire motorcycle is capable of rapid acceleration with just a twist of the throttle – no clutching or gear shifting required.

An optimized center of gravity, rigid aluminum frame and premium adjustable suspension components give the LiveWire motorcycle dynamic handling. With up to 146 miles of range, performance is optimized for the urban street-rider.



  • Amazing acceleration: The instant torque provided by the H-D Revelation powertrain delivers exhilarating acceleration from a stop; the LiveWire motorcycle can rush from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 100 kph) in under 3.0 seconds and 60 to 80 mph (100 to 129 kph) in 1.9 seconds. Because maximum torque is always on tap, roll-on acceleration for passing from any speed is outstanding. Electric power requires no clutch and no gear shifting, greatly simplifying operation for new riders. 

  • Signature Sound: The H-D Revelation electric powertrain produces minimal vibration, very little heat, and minimal noise, all of which enhance rider comfort. The LiveWire is designed to produce a signature Harley-Davidson sound as the LiveWire motorcycle accelerates and gains speed; a new sound that represents the smooth, electric power of the LiveWire motorcycle.

  • Riding Range and Charging: The high-voltage RESS provides 146 miles (235 km) of city range or 95 miles (152 km) of combined stop-and-go and highway range as measured using the MIC City and MIC Combined tests** and 98 miles (158 km) using World Motorcycle Test Cycle (WMTC)*** . DC Fast Charge (DCFC) technology provides a 0-80 percent of battery charge in 40 minutes or 0-100 percent charge in 60 minutes.
