Harley-Davidson To Launch More Affordable E-Bikes Based On ‘Arrow’ Platform


Under its premium EV brand LiveWire, Harley-Davidson is planning more electric bikes. If international media stories are to be believed, the corporation will debut the LiveWire One’s brother, the ‘S2 Del Mar,’ in the coming years.

In the coming years, Harley-Davidson will release the S2 Del Mar, the LiveWire One’s sister.
In India, Harley-new Davidson’s and cheap electric versions are also anticipated to debut.

It’ll be built on the firm’s new patented scalable modular ‘Arrow’ architecture. This new platform is positioned as a cheese-friendly addition to the middleweight division. Using the same platform, more models will be introduced in the future.

After the middleweight LiveWire S2 (System 2) models, Harley will launch further bikes based on the same platform. LiveWire S3 models will be more lightweight, while LiveWire S4 models will be heavier. The H-D LiveWire One, of course, will continue to be the brand’s premium model (with its sky-high price).

The new Arrow platform will avoid the battery-stored-in-frame feature of the current LiveWire One by using the battery as a stressed member, similar to what is seen on a KTM SuperDuke R, BMW Motorrad’s R1100RS, or Ducati’s range. A motor, battery, inverter, and on-board charger will be included in the platform, which can be used in a variety of ways.

The S2 will appeal to the middle category of the audience and will thus not feature the LiveWire One’s ballistic motor performance. The new battery-powered models from the legacy motorcycle maker will also knock on the Indian doors post their international appearance. Expect more details to be rolled out in the near future.
