LiveWire, Harley-Davidson’s electric motorcycle division, announces that it will integrate the battery as a load-bearing part in the future. The aim is to save weight and costs.

By default, the motor is installed in the frame of the motorcycle, but individual models use the motor as a load-bearing part. This means that the frame no longer has to be routed around the engine (the main frame is eliminated), which in some cases allows for a narrower and, above all, lighter design. LiveWire plans to continue using this approach on their Arrow platform in the future.

 

LiveWire Arrow

The drive block of the Arrow platform consists of battery, motor and the necessary electronics. It is to be connected to the steering head at the front via a subframe. The swingarm is attached to the side engine mounts and the suspension strut is attached to the rear of the block via a linkage.

The Arrow platform is said to offer voltages between 50 and 400 volts, depending on the configuration. Accordingly, different power levels are possible.

Various models are planned that will use this platform, but there is no more detailed information on this as yet. However, they are likely to be motorcycles that are “smaller in size” than the LiveWire.
