Harley-Davidson unveils $30,000 'twist-and-go' electric motorcycle that hits 110 miles...

• https://www.dailymail.co, By CHEYENNE MACDONALD

Harley-Davidson showed off its first ever electric motorcycle at CES 2019 in Las Vegas.

The 'twist-and-go' bike ditches the traditional shifters and chirps out a turbine-like whir in lieu of the characteristic rumble – but with its ease of use, swift acceleration, and agile handling, the firm is hoping to win over new riders and long-time Harley owners alike.

Called LiveWire, Harley's first EV can hit a top speed of around 110 miles per hour and achieves a range of 110 miles of mixed urban and highway driving. The bike can go from 0 to 60mph in 3.5 seconds, Harley-Davidson says.

Pre-orders for the $29,799 vehicle are now open in the US, and it should begin shipping by fall 2019.

LiveWire will also launch in Canada and most of Europe later this year, Harley-Davidson says.

The firm demonstrated its new motorcycle at the Panasonic booth at CES, using the Magic Leap augmented reality headset to create an immersive experience on the show-floor.

Even at a quick glance, Harley's latest motorcycle is a standout from its previous models.
