This site is my place to share my thoughts on my favorite motorcycles and my interest in electric motorcycles. Hopefully the info here is of interest to, or helps other riders.
My latest passion is electric motorcycles, including those built by Livewire Group, Inc. and Energica Motor Company.
Originally the electric motorcycle division of Harley Davidson, Livewire Group, Inc. is now a separate company with majority ownership by Harley Davidson. Livewire Group, Inc. produces both the Livewire One (LW1) motorcycle and now its second motorcycle, the S2 Del Mar (S2DM).
Energica Motor Company is an Italian motorcycle manufacturer headquartered in Modena, Italy. It is a subsidiary of Ideanomics and CRP Group. Energica has a U.S. operations headquarters in RAace City - Mooresville, NC. It's U.S. Sales and Service center is in San Francisco, CA.
The Livewire One (LW1, VIN code XB) is arguably the best electric motorcycle on the market today. Produced by Livewire Group, Inc., the LW1 motorcycle has a 0-60 time of 3.0 seconds and a top speed of approximately 110 mph. As delivered, it weighs 562 lbs.
The Livewire One motorcycle is as home on the track, as it is on the road!
The S2 Del Mar (S2DM, VIN code GC) is Livewire Group, Inc.'s second electric motorcycle. Weighing only 436 lbs, it has a 0-60 time of 3.0 seconds, with a top speed of about 103 mph.
Initially produced as a 2024 model, the Launch Edition (LE) of the S2 Del Mar began deliveries on September 6, 2023.
One-hundred S2 Del Mar LE motorcycles were produced, in a mix of Comet Indigo (mine is shown to the right) and Jasper Grey. Regular production versions of the S2 Del Mar follow the LE.
Back to Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) bikes - the XR1200 (VIN code LA) followed by the XR1200X (VIN code LD) were Harley Davidson motorcycles produced from 2008 through 2013. Built on the Sportster platform, the XR1200 was originally fielded in the international market for use in a spec racing series. The motorcycle was available in the U.S. from 2009 through 2012. And, the final motorcycles were produced in Brazil, for the Brazil market, during 2013. The XR1200 carries design lines from Harley's XR750 race bike and is my favorite Harley.
