An approximate total number Livewire motorcycles, from origin through mid-year 2023, is 3198. This number is calculated based on the numbers in the table, and the following logic.
HD Customer Support provided the Livewire production numbers for 2020 and 2021. This information includes numbers for the Harley Davidson branded, Livewire (ELW) motorcycle and the initial 2021 Livewire One (LW1) production. (These are not official production numbers, but are from phonecons with HD Customer Support.)
Livewire Group, Inc. does not report production numbers. Livewire Group reports sales numbers in quarterly and annual financial reports. Additionally, Livewire Group, Inc. continues to report carryover sales numbers of ELW motorcycles produced in 2020 and 2021, and for Livewire, LLC (LW`1) motorcycles which began production in 2021. So, there is some overlap in Livewire sales reporting with production numbers from previous years.
An approximation of the total number of XA+XB Livewires produced through mid-year 2023 is based on:
= 2291 + 238 + 22 = 2573
Therefore, the total number of ELW and LW1 motorcycles should be approximately
= 2573 (2020 and 2021) + 522 (2022) + 140 (2023) = 3235
An alternate view would be that there are:
2291 Model-year 2020 ELW motorcycles with VIN XA
22 Model-year 2021 ELW motorcycles with VIN XA
238 Model-year 2021 LW1 motorcycles with VIN XB
544 Model-year 2022 LW1 motorcycles with VIN XB
140 Model-year 2023 LW1 motorcycles with VIN XB
3235 Approximate Total Number of ELW and LW1 motorcycles
(I'll refine this as additional 2023 sales numbers are released,
with detail on the number of 2023 motorcycles sold, and on
the number of 2020/2021 motorcycles that may be double counted.

(9) The estimated 4Q 2022 sales numbers for ELW and LW1 are simply and estimate based on
the known 3Q and Total numbers for 2022.
Note: Harley-Davidson did declare a 2021 model year for the ELW in a December 30 2020 filing to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The production numbers in the narrative do reflect all production, including the 2021 ELW motorcycles
An approximate total number Livewire motorcycles from origin through 3Q 2023 is 3235.
This number is calculated based on the numbers in the above table and the thoughts in the narrative to the left. This number will be revised and refined as Livewire Group Inc. comes out with 4th quarter 2023 reporting.
