A production-ready Harley-Davidson Livewire is currently on display in Victoria, with the new electric bike expected to go on sale in August.
Two Livewire units are now in the country, with the first now sitting at Geelong Harley-Davidson until February 3.
The other Livewire, which is finished in orange, is currently going through the process of ADR compliance testing.
According to the Geelong dealership, this will be the only opportunity to see the motorcycle up close until at least the second quarter of this year.
Importantly, the local unit features a fully adjustable Showa mono shock at the rear.
It is also equipped with large Brembo brake calipers that grab dual 300mm discs on the front wheel.
Exact local specs have yet to be confirmed, however, the Australian model is expected to mirror that of the European and North American markets.
It is also expected to check in around the $40,000 mark, before on-road costs.
The Harley-Davidson Livewire features a riding range of 225 kilometres, and can be charged from zero to 100 per cent in 60 minutes when connected to a DC fast charger.
Sprinting from zero to 100km/h takes just three seconds, and the bike boasts a top speed of 177km/h.
The Harley-Davidson Livewire is available to inspect at Geelong Harley-Davidson’s waterfront display this Sat/Sun (1/2 Feb) from between 9-4pm.
