Can you ride the Harley-Davidson LiveWire on an A2 licence?
Yes, you can ride the Harley-Davidson LiveWire (2019 onwards) on an A2 motorbike licence. There is no restriction required, as the motorcycle is fully A2 licence compliant!
Harley-Davidson LiveWire (2019 onwards)
The Harley-Davidson LiveWire is the company’s first electric motorcycle. It is a hybrid between a cruiser and a naked bike, and it comes with a 15.5 kWh battery. As most other electric bikes, it has a relatively low battery range and therefore, it is more suitable for urban riding.
The motorcycle is very comfortable to ride, even on longer distances. You can switch between four riding modes (sport, road, range, and rain). The bike handles extremely well and the steering feel is very natural. The battery range is around 110 miles (177 km), which might not seem very good at first, but it is more than enough for everyday commuting.
The build quality of the motorcycle is really good, but you will have to pay for it. The Harley-Davidson LiveWire will cost you a whopping £25,000 when you purchase a new bike.
Because it is an electric motorcycle, you don’t need any A2 licence restriction, even though its horsepower exceeds the A2 licence limit. Also, you don’t have to pay the road tax.
