26Harley-Davidson Livewire electric bike would cost $50k if made today

Harley-Davidson President and COO Matt Levatich rode into the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council's yearly confab on a Project LiveWire – that's the un-Harley electric motorcycle concept, its loudest noise coming from riders singing its praises and shocked onlookers reappraising the brand. While we know that the LiveWire is still being developed, Levatich's comments at the event suggest it's one of those good things which we're going to have to wait a long time for.

Harley Goes All-Electric With LiveWire Concept Motorcycle

For many, Harley-Davidson stands for freedom, individuality and, most importantly, the loud, lumpy rumble of a powerful gas engine. That's why the storied motorcycle manufacturer has been cautious in its approach to electrification. In order to gauge response to an all-electric hog, Harley-Davidson has set out on a global tour dubbed Project LiveWire.

5Harley-Davidson 'Captain America' bike from Easy Rider nets $1.35M at auction

The famous, custom Harley-Davidson motorcycle nicknamed Captain America from the '60s classic Easy Rider sold for $1.35 million at auction on October 18, or just over $1.6 million after applicable fees. That was a new record price ever paid for a cycle, according to Hemmings, and It handily beat auction house Profiles in History's original estimate of as much as $1.2 million. However, a revelation about a possible problem with the bike's authenticity came to light just before the sale that could

10Harley-Davidson from Easy Rider expected to fetch $1.2M

With the famous tag line, "A man went looking for America. And couldn't find it anywhere..." the 1969 movie Easy Rider has become one of the definitive on-screen expressions of the counter culture of the era. Starring Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper with a great guest role from Jack Nicholson, it told the story of disillusioned guys riding motorcycles through the US. Among the most iconic parts of the film was the customized Harley-Davidson chopper that Fonda's character rode. On October 18, the b

5Sales of electric motorcycles, scooters will reach 55 million in next decade

Current and future electric motorcycle and e-scooter makers are hoping that global sales of the two-wheeled plug-ins take off as quickly as their electric-powered bikes. Numbers collected by Navigant Research should give those companies a bit of hope. The research firm says the e-motorcycle and e-scooter market is ready to surge as component prices drop while gas prices continue to rise.

35Leno rides Harley-Davidson Livewire EV

Harley-Davidson shocked the motorcycling world when it unveiled its Livewire electric bike concept earlier this year. It seemed to go from vague rumors to a full-on, existing piece of machinery in just a matter of days. Even more amazing, the company immediately launched a test-ride campaign throughout the US to gather the opinions of the brand's fans. Of course, if you're Jay Leno, such exotic machinery comes straight to your front door – because he is a huge fan, for starters, though the

20Harley-Davidson joins GM, FCA in ignition-switch recall

We've seen a rash of ignition switch recalls this year, especially from General Motors, but also from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Harley-Davidson is joining their ranks with a new repair campaign on some of its bikes, but for a somewhat different reason: some examples of one model might be vibrating too much.

15Harley-Davidson calls in 66k Touring bikes for brake line problems

Most of the recalls we cover involve four-wheeled automobiles – and most of those these days have come from General Motors, at that – but every once in a while a motorcycle recall comes across our desks that's just too substantial to ignore. This is one of those recalls.

AddThe unexpected connection between Chevy Volt and electric Harley LiveWire

It's approximately 385 miles from Detroit to Milwaukee. With former General Motors executive Jim Federico helping to lead Harley-Davidson's rather quiet trek into the electric-vehicle age, that distance theoretically just got quite a bit shorter. Now, if we only knew how many full charges it will take Harley's LiveWire EV to get from one city to the other, we'd really be happy.

Testing For The Future By Breaking With The Past

Days before Harley-Davidson shocked the world with news that after 111 years of building increasingly larger, gas-powered V-twins, it was going all Tesla with its plug-in electric LiveWire, I had the chance to ride it.

109Harley-Davidson shows Project Livewire electric motorcycle [w/video]

When Bob Dylan dropped his acoustic in the 1960s and switched to an electric guitar the stodgy world of folk music lost its collective mind.

28eBay Find of the Day: Harley-Davidson powered Toyota Prius [w/video]

Sometimes we pluck cars from the listings of eBay Motors because they're old and interesting, some for being simply lovely, some for rarity and some for pure fun. And sometimes we pick eBay Finds of the Day, because they're hacked apart Toyota Prius' with Harley Davidson V-twin-power; concocted by the same mind that brought you innumerable Jalopnik articles and is partially responsible for the joy that is the 24 Hours of LeMons. This time it's that last one.

29Harley-Davidson looking to put Japan on trikes

The five million people in Japan who hold motorcycle licenses have made that country Harley-Davidson's second-largest market after North America. But there are 80 million people in Japan with a driver's license, and the company's Tri Glide trike has made the Harley experience available to that "rich trove of untapped demand" this month for a base price of four million yen ($39,000 US).

46Ohio man buried astride his beloved Harley [w/video]

Scroll through the dozens of articles you see published on Autoblog every day, and you'll quickly get an appreciation for how fundamental the love of vehicles is for many of us.

5Icon builds 'Iron Lung' Harley Davidson Sportster [w/video]

Icon is known for its stylized motorcycle helmets and gear, but it also builds themed, custom motorcycles, too. The folks over at Icon most recently built Iron Lung, which started out as a 1991 Harley-Davidson Sportster. Of course, it now looks nothing like the bike on which it's based - more like what Harley might have produced if it got into road racing a couple decades ago.

47Harley-Davidson launches liquid-cooled Street 500 and 750 [w/videos]

Think of a Harley-Davidson and you'll likely imagine an old man riding a cruiser on the highway. But this is another kind of Harley altogether.

26Enterprise to begin renting Harley-Davidson motorcycles

Heading to Las Vegas for a work convention? Instead of renting that midsize car (we won't name names), now you can show up Sons of Anarchy style on the back of a new Harley-Davidson. Enterprise Rent-A-Car has created a pilot program for motorcycle rentals starting with a single location in Vegas, but it could spread to other cities if the option to drop two wheels is well received.

21Harley-Davidson calling in nearly 30,000 new hogs for clutch repair

If you bought a new Harley-Davidson recently (specifically a Touring or Softail model), you may want to stop riding it for the time being, because the company has put out a recall notice on certain models.
