Harley-Davidson’s first electric motorcycle, the LiveWire, is set to arrive in H-D dealerships later this summer – and in preparation, dealers across America have been installing EV charging stations.

Harley-Davidson plans to have at least one dealer stocking a LiveWire in every state in the USA, with dedicated LiveWire sales staff on hand to help punters get to grips with the new electric machine. That’s not all, H-D’s mechanics have also been sent for electric vehicle training – learning more about how to deal with the electronics and high voltage systems found in the LiveWire.

It looks like H-D is getting pretty serious about electric – which isn’t too much of a surprise, considering it recently announced four new electric concepts (including light electric motorcycles and even an electric bicycle). And credit where credit’s due – the introduction of charging infrastructure in every state is definitely a step in the right direction, as we all move towards an electric future. Sadly, there’s been no news yet on whether we’ll see the same thing happening in the UK – but you’d hope so.
