Harley-Davidson reveals Project LiveWire the first electric Harley-Davidson motorcycle

 H-D Invites Consumers to Ride, React and Shape the Future of this New Bike 

NEW YORK (June 19, 2014) – Innovation, meet heritage. Today, Harley-Davidson (NYSE:HOG) reveals Project LiveWire – the first Harley-Davidson® electric motorcycle.

HD Project LiveWire

In keeping with the company’s customer-led product development approach, starting next week select consumers across the country will be able to ride and provide feedback on the bike, helping to shape the future of Harley-Davidson’s first-ever electric motorcycle.

While not for sale, Project LiveWire is specifically designed for the purpose of getting insight into rider expectations of an electric Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

“America at its best has always been about reinvention,” said Matt Levatich, President and Chief Operating Officer, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. “And, like America, Harley-Davidson has reinvented itself many times in our history, with customers leading us every step of the way. Project LiveWire is another exciting, customer-led moment in our history.”

Spurred by this heritage, the Project LiveWire Experience invites customers to test ride, provide feedback and learn more about the story of the motorcycle. Even those who don’t yet ride will have the opportunity to feel the power of Project LiveWire through Jumpstart – a simulated riding experience.

A 2014 U.S. tour – kicking off with a journey down Route 66 – will visit more than 30 Harley-Davidson dealerships now through the end of the year. In 2015, the Project LiveWire Experience will continue in the U.S. and expand into Canada and Europe.

“This builds on many recent reinvention successes for Harley-Davidson.” said Levatich. “In just the last few years, we’ve broadened our reach to serve an increasingly diverse society, as well as reinvented our approach to product development and manufacturing. This has resulted in cutting-edge products like the recently launched Project Rushmore touring bikes, Harley-Davidson Street 500 and 750 models and this reveal of Project LiveWire.”  

An Innovative Approach to Advance the Possibilities of Personal Freedom

This exciting new ride blends the company’s styling heritage with the latest technology to deliver a new expression of the signature Harley-Davidson look, sound and feel.

“Project LiveWire is more like the first electric guitar – not an electric car,” said Mark-Hans Richer, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. “It’s an expression of individuality and iconic style that just happens to be electric. Project LiveWire is a bold statement for us as a company and a brand.”

The bike offers a visceral riding experience with tire-shredding acceleration and an unmistakable new sound.

“The sound is a distinct part of the thrill,” said Richer. “Think fighter jet on an aircraft carrier. Project LiveWire’s unique sound was designed to differentiate it from internal combustion and other electric motorcycles on the market.” 

Longer term plans for retail availability of Project LiveWire will be influenced by feedback from riders along the Project Livewire Experience tour.

“We offer a no excuses riding experience in everything we do and we are led by what our customers tell us matters most,” said Richer. “Because electric vehicle technology is evolving rapidly, we are excited to learn more from riders through the Project LiveWire Experience to fully understand the definition of success in this market as the technology continues to evolve.”

Helping Preserve and Renew the Freedom to Ride for Generations

As riding in the great outdoors is one of the best elements of motorcycling, sustainability remains a core strategic focus at Harley-Davidson.

“Preserving the riding environment is important to all of us,” said Levatich. “Project LiveWire is just one element in our efforts to preserve and renew the freedom to ride for generations to come. As a company that has seen success for 111 years, we think in generational terms about our great riding environments for the next 111 years.” 

Fans can learn more about Project LiveWire, as well as specific dates and locations for Project LiveWire Experience stops at  Harley-Davidson also invites anyone who is interested in the possibilities of the future to follow and engage with the company on its social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Harley-Davidson Motor Company produces heavyweight custom, cruiser and touring motorcycles and offers a complete line of Harley-Davidson motorcycle parts, accessories, riding gear and apparel, and general merchandise. For more information, visit Harley-Davidson's website at

IHRA Nitro Jam Spring Nationals Results






Rupert, Waddle headline IHRA's thrilling return to Rockingham Dragway at Spring Nationals

ROCKINGHAM, N.C. (May 18, 2014) - New world records, stunning upset winners and a showdown for the ages, the International Hot Rod Association's return to Rockingham Dragway provided enough drama for an entire season.


With nostalgia flowing through the pits in IHRA's return to its traditional stomping grounds, the ghosts of drag racing's all-time greats witnessed a classic as IHRA's most dominant driver, Jason Rupert, and a brand new face, Brad Waddle, headlined a weekend full of great racing in the heart of drag racing country at Rockingham Dragway.


  Jason Rupert bested Peter Gallen in one of the closest Nitro Funny Car showdowns of the 2014 season. Rupert's win was his third of the year  


Rupert won a race for the ages in the finals of IHRA's nostalgia Nitro Funny Car class, as the driver of the Bays & Rupert "Black Plague" '69 Camaro bested three-time IHRA Nitro Funny Car champion Peter Gallen by four thousandths of a second at the line. Rupert joined Kansas native Brad Waddle, winner of Mountain Motor Pro Stock, in the winner's circle, along with pro winners Mike Scott (Nitro Harley), Ron Maroney (Nitro Altered) and Marisha Falk (Jet Dragster).


Sportsman winners during day two of the IHRA Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am Tour presented by AMSOIL were Mike Koontz (Top Sportsman), Jeffrey Dobbins II (Top Dragster), Jim Reynolds (Super Stock), A.J. Currie (Stock), Dale Harrison (Quick Rod), Gerald Pierce (Super Rod), Michelle Pelo (Hot Rod), Zach Pennington (Junior Master), Wallace Wilson (Junior Advanced) and Mallory Logan (Junior Beginner).


But there was no bigger winner than Rupert.


Destined to meet in the finals from the very start, Rupert and Gallen, two longtime, dominant figures in their class representing each side of the country, both proved significantly ahead of their peers. The pair qualified first and second on Saturday and made easy work of their competitors on Sunday, ending in one of the closest races of the entire 2014 racing season.


  Brad Waddle (near) overcame a weekends' worth of adversity to claim his first career Pro Stock win over Kevin Bealko and Black Diamond Racing 


With an Ironman on the line between two former world champions in the nostalgia flopper class, Gallen got off the line first with a .081 reaction time to Rupert's .130, but Rupert flexed his muscle on the top end and powered past the driver of the "Poverty Stricken" '77 Vega with a 5.684-second pass at 253.18 mph, besting Gallen's 5.737, 242.50 by four thousandths at the line.


"I saw him out of the window and then he started to disappear on me. At that point, all I could do was look up at the scoreboard and hope I have enough room," Rupert said. "I am used to driving modern Funny Cars and you sit so far back in those that if you see someone out your side window, then they are way ahead. With these cars, it is a bit different. I only saw his front quarter panel so I thought I better rev this thing up and hope the track is long enough.


"When I crossed the finish line I had no idea who had just won. Luckily we had the full 1,320 feet!"


Not only was the pass good enough for the win, but it also handed Rupert a brand new IHRA Nitro Funny Car elapsed time world record.


Rupert's 5.698-second pass during qualifying on Saturday was good enough to back up Sunday's record run and place him first on the ladder, .01 better than Gallen. From there it was only a matter of time until the pair met in the finals.


Rupert bested Mike Halstead and Mark Sanders on his way to the championship round, posting laps of 5.843 and 5.736 as his bracket-like weekend paved the way for his third win in four races.


  Mike Scott, from British Columbia, won for the second time this season in Nitro Harley aboard a Jay Turner-owned ride 


"I have so much respect for these guys out here that is it is truly humbling to have the success that we have been having," Rupert said. "I can only speak for myself, but I was a little nervous going into the final as I am with most of my runs. We were both probably nervous to run one another, I knew there was a lot of people watching, but it turned out to be a great race. 


"We are on top right now, but you never know how long that is going to last."


Sunday's other big winner in Rockingham was Salina, Kan. native Brad Waddle. The driver of the Innovator's West 2013 Ford Mustang Mountain Motor Pro Stock overcame a weekend full of challenges on his way to his first career Pro Stock victory over Kevin Bealko. With a much smaller operation encompassed in a three-person crew, Waddle worked his way from last on the ladder to the championship round where he ran the quickest and fastest quarter-mile pass of his career to take home his first career Pro Stock win.


Waddle bested Bealko, driver of the AMSOIL-backed 2014 Chevrolet Camaro for Black Diamond Motorsports, with a 6.412 pass at 220.66 mph to claim the win. Bealko had a 6.440, 212.93 in the runner-up effort.


"About 20 years ago we got into drag racing and about four years ago I got my first taste of Pro Stock. We loved it, but we never thought we would ever be able to run with the big boys, especially over here in IHRA," Waddle said. "But holy cow. When I went out there with a chance to win, it was unreal. I left and saw Kevin up beside me, so I pulled fifth and I could feel the car start pulling right on by and I thought, hey, we just won this deal!"


Waddle overcame a smoking John DeFlorian in the first round and earned the bye into the finals by taking out the weekend's top qualifier. From there, it was just one pass that stood between himself and IHRA glory.


  Marisha Falk won her third Jet Dragster title of the season in Rockingham 


"They know that we have the potential, but we don't always have the expertise to get it done. We are getting there. We are a rookie team compared to most of these guys, but we stay aggressive and resourceful and now it has finally paid off," Waddle said. "I have to thank Hurco, Innovators West and everyone back at the shop, my crew chief Marc Brown, co-crew chief Chuck Lawrence and Jon Kaase for the big power.


"I have always wanted one of these big trophies. I have never even held one until today."


Nitro Harley kept the excitement alive as Mike Scott, representing the small town of Blind Bay in British Columbia, defeated teammate Randal Andras in the finals of the nitro-powered Harley Davidson class. From the second spot on the ladder, Scott overcame a slight holeshot to take the win with a 6.449 pass at 207.72 mph, just ahead of Andras' slowing 6.767, 211.46 run.


Scott had wins over Alvin Kobernusz and local favorite Mark Cox on his way to the final.


Ron Maroney and Marisha Falk wrapped up the professional competition with wins in Nitro Altered and Jet Dragster respectively, bringing the thrilling return of the IHRA Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series to Rockingham Dragway to a close.


Maroney, behind the wheel of the "Blind Faith" nostalgia machine, bested Shane Harter in "Nasty Benjamin" in the Chicago-style elimination with a 6.319, 215.44 as Harter broke on the line.


Falk, on the other hand, won her third Ironman of the season in a thriller in the finals of Jet Dragster, besting teammate and birthday girl Dawn Perdue. The top qualifier out of Port Orange, Florida drove the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University jet-powered dragster to a 5.703, 275.28 pass to edge Perdue's 5.765, 271.08.


The IHRA Nitro Jam Drag Racing Series will be back in action June 13-14 at the IHRA Nitro Jam President's Cup Nationals at Maryland International Raceway.

Give A Thought To Motorcycle Saddlebags
Guest Blog

Now day's people are riding their motorcycles more and more. With today's economy being the way that it is who could blame them? Riding your bike on a trip to your favorite shopping mall, or a quick run down to the local convenient store is all well and good. There is only one problem with this, the motorcycle does not come equipped with a trunk.

It's hard for the rider to keep their hands on the handlebars, while trying to carry all of his or her purchases too. While I suppose one could carry their purchases on their lap, you sure take the chance of the wind carrying your treasures away. Unless of course the rider has a passenger, then the bothersome task becomes the responsibility of the passenger to hold tight to all of those bags. The problem with this is their hands are now not free to hang on, and that is just simply not safe.

Having a set of saddlebags is a more convenient and much safer way to store all of your belongings. They can be used for much more than your shopping spree purchases. It's also a good Idea to pack necessities for the road, after all one should always be prepared. Here are a eight things that I would recommend storing in your saddlebags.

1. A small first aid kit
2. Jacket
3. A spare set of sunglasses, we all know several of these have fallen victim to the wind
4. Rain poncho
5. Flashlight
6. Map
7. Bottle of water
8. A spare charged battery for your cell phone, as we all know we don't always have service on our cell phones. It's always a good idea to let someone know of the route in which you intend to travel. Sadly, we just never know when problems will occur. It never hurts to be prepared.

All of these things are for precautionary measures while at the same time they won't take up a lot of your storage space.

Saddlebags may be an accessory for the motorcycle but also serve as a necessity for the rider. Whether the rider chooses to have leather saddlebags, or perhaps they prefer the pvc saddlebags, it's all a matter of choice. Any style of saddlebags is a good choice for you and your bike. They not only serve their purpose they also add a certain amount of flare to that special motorcycle. Saddlebags not only give character to your bike they are a convenience for the rider as well. They are virtually the motorcycles trunk. One would be amazed at just how much a set of saddlebags will hold. Not to mention owning a set of saddlebags you can keep all of your goodies stored securely inside, while staying safe and keeping both hands on the handlebars. With so much traffic on the highways these days, especially the big rigs it's not always easy for those drivers to spot the motorcycles, and the rider always needs to be on guard. So taking every precautionary measure to be safe is the key. Staying safe is above all the most important thing to remember while you are out traveling the open road.
