LiveWire S2 Del Mar: European market launch
LiveWire has announced the suggested retail price for the S2 Del Mar, as well as expected delivery dates. The company is also unveiling an exclusive color variant for the European S2 Del Mar Launch Edition, which will be offered in an edition of 100 motorcycles and will be available in four countries.
Jochen Zeitz, Chairman and CEO of LiveWire, commented, “We want to be a leader in the electrification of two-wheelers, and we believe the U.S. pricing of the S2 Del Mar – $15,499 – will increase the adoption of e-motorcycles and further solidify LiveWire’s leadership in this segment. With the news of the affordable pricing, we hope to excite all those who have already reserved a machine and those who are interested in the S2 Del Mar.”
Pricing and availability in the U.S.
The Launch Edition could be pre-ordered in the Americas as early as May 2022 for a $100 deposit. The production version of the S2 Del Mar is set at $15,499 (MSRP).

(Preliminary) technical data and performance
Previously, there was talk of an engine output of 81 PS (80.1 hp, 59.6 kW), and a weight of 199 kg (438.7 lbs). Acceleration was said to be from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.5 seconds, and range in city traffic was quoted at 100 miles (161 km). Since LiveWire is now talking about not announcing the specs until June (American as well as European version), it’s possible that something has changed here.

Harley-Davidson, Inc. holds the majority stake in the company, which grew out of Harley-Davidson and benefits from H-D’s experience in electric vehicles over the past decade. With its clear focus on e-mobility, LiveWire aims to develop the technology of the future and invest in all aspects that contribute to leadership in the corresponding changes in motorcycling.
