The PSNI BikeSafe Team have taken delivery of a fully electric Harley-Davidson LiveWire motorcycle. This bike is liveried up in police colours and fitted with emergency lights and sirens. One of the very few fully electric motorcycles on the market, the Harley-Davidson LiveWire has an open road range of over 160 kilometres and boasts 104 bhp. This one is on loan from Harley-Davidson UK and will be on display at BikeSafe events over the coming months.
As one of the only major manufacturers with a fully-electric motorcycle on sale, Harley-Davidson was delighted to meet the opportunity to provide these zero emission motorcycles to the PSNI to promote such a worthwhile endeavour as BikeSafe.
The bike has a high-voltage Recharge Energy Storage System (RESS). This provides 235 km of city range. This will enable the officers with the PSNI to react in a quick, safe and clean manner. It’s not surprising that the bike has won a number of awards.
In order to get the bikes ready for the job in hand this unique, fully-electric LiveWire machine has been specially adapted to meet the exacting operational needs of the force. This task was successfully undertaken by the technical team at Belfast Harley-Davidson, the local dealership in Antrim.
