Socially-distanced folks within the stands appeared to substantiate nothing spectacular occurred, as they appeared unimpressed with what was taking place down on the strip. As such, few could have anticipated data being damaged.
Solely that they have been (type of), and Harley confirmed this with an announcement made on September 10.
As per the bike maker, one of many three riders, Angelle Sampey (who often rides a FXDR Professional Inventory) accelerated the LiveWire to the data of finest elapsed time and prime velocity.
In brief, the LiveWire coated the eighth-mile distance (201 meters) in 7.017-seconds and the total quarter-mile (402 meters) in 11.156 seconds, whereas reaching a prime velocity 110.35 mph (177.6 kph), which is a little more than the official prime velocity of the motorbike.
“Let me inform you what’s superb,” mentioned Sampey in an announcement. “That was the primary time I rode the LiveWire. I couldn’t wait to get it on the monitor. The LiveWire is really easy to journey. Simply twist the throttle and go, and you actually go!”
So, nice numbers, and that made Harley assured sufficient to say it set the all-new data for an “electric-powered manufacturing motorbike on a drag racing course.”
So, that is the baseline for future electrical bikes to beat. However given how there’s just about no competitors within the electric-powered manufacturing motorbike section on the drag strip for the time being, it’s like Harley topped itself the ruler of an empty realm.
