Harley-Davidson unveiled its new LiveWire motorcycle at the Panasonic booth at CES. The performance figures released state that the bike can hit a top speed of around 110 miles per hour. Controversially, the new electric motorcycle is completely clutchless which Harley-Davidson maintains will allow for ‘instantaneous power the moment you twist the throttle’. It also has no transmission and no shifters. Harley-Davidson has successfully developed its original concept and created an electric bike with 110 miles.

Ducati has not released an official bike or concept. However, Ducati has recently stated that the future of the industry is electric bikes. The motorcycle brand has now said that they are ‘not far’ off from launching their range. This is going to be the first step for the company in moving towards a more exciting future.
