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.

So Jealous. I moved to Australia in the millennium. And the only pork pies I have found are occasionally in supermarket deli’s and are small and frozen And the Heinz salad cream is in small glass bottles. Not a decent sized squeeze bottle I am just going to have to move back It is decidedly unacceptable to keep putting up with the pain of poor substitutes. Btw. When you were in York you should’ve tried the pork pies there. I remember a butcher in the city centre close to where you got ur Yorkshire pudding. And they used to win prizes for their pork pies. And the Harley. Well I wouldn’t say no to that one but half the joy of a Harley is the sound of the twin thumping down the road. Just saying

The idea that you have to plan your entire route around the range of an EV, then spend 30 percent of your journey waiting for it to charge just reminds me why I NEVER want to leave gasoline.

You should try a bike that runs on petrol. I do believe there are 'charging' stations everywhere and it only takes a couple of minutes. That way you can also keep up with your mates who beat you to the destination by a couple of days.

The charge time and price on this bike are insane. Insane. They can't even beat Zero motorcycles in range. They cost 2-3x as much. And they charge as slow as I've ever seen. And I own an I3. The fact they turned this into a food show tells you all you need to know. I've owned a few Harleys. Once they announced this price I was OUT.

Yeah, the "adventure" was trying to find a place to recharge your 2-wheel golf cart... Back in the early '80s, I can remember driving about 1200 miles across the eastern half of the US on a bike that only got around 100 miles on a tank due to reduced fuel economy because of a large frame mounted touring fairing plus it only had a small gas tank. Back then, the gas stations along the interstate highway system were not open 24x7, so at one point, I ended up sleeping in front of a gas pump until the station opened up the next morning because I was pretty sure that I did not have enough fuel to make it to the next town. Your experience with the electric bike is even worse since there are less places to recharge and even if you find one, you're not guaranteed that it will be working or the cable will be there that will work on your bike. I'll stay with my dino-juice powered vehicles...

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.

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.
