Harley-Davidson and Kymco team up on LiveWire electric bikes

Harley-Davidson and Kymco are both making an investment in LiveWire – the brand H-D spun out for their electric motorcycle.

H-D made LiveWire a separate company last year in a move that they say would give the brand the autonomy it needs.

As part of this, H-D is taking LiveWire public where it will be traded on the New York Stock Exchange.

This will make it the first American electric motorcycle brand to go public and they will have just over half a billion dollars in the bank account when they do.

As part of this, LiveWire is free to do what it likes, which from the offing appears to be developing electric drivetrains for H-D and Kymco, as Kymco are investing $100m.

It could well be that LiveWire will provide the motor for Kymco’s SuperNex and RevoNex superbike and supernaked.
