“The S2 Del Mar model represents the next step in the evolution of the LiveWire brand,” said Jochen Zeitz, president and CEO of Harley-Davidson. “The ARROW architecture underpinning the Del Mar, developed in-house at LiveWire Labs, demonstrates our ambition to lead in the EV space and establish LiveWire as the most desirable electric motorcycle brand in the world.”

Advanced LiveWire ARROW architecture

LiveWire’s scalable ARROW architecture with proprietary battery, motor, charging and control systems debuts on the Del Mar model and was designed by LiveWire Labs in Mountain View, California. The ARROW architecture is intended to be modular and serves as the central component of the bike’s chassis.

Del Mar is designed to give its rider thrilling performance with a targeted 80 horsepower (59.6 kW), delivering projected 0-60 mph times of 3.5 seconds. The city range should be 100 miles. * The Del Mar model’s goal weight is 440 pounds or less.

An urban street tracker

Del Mar features a street-tracker stance on 19-inch front and rear wheels fitted with custom-developed Dunlop DT1 LiveWire tires equally capable on paved and dirt surfaces. The slim saddle tops a short rear section. A tracker-style handlebar topped with a thin screen puts the rider in an upright position for a comfortable and controlled riding experience.

Launch Edition Template

Only 100 examples of the Del Mar Launch Edition models will be made, with an exclusive finish and wheel design. The graphics and paint – in a choice of Jasper Gray or Comet Indigo – are applied by hand in a process that takes 5 days. The design uses an opposite fade, representing and celebrating both the thrilling and moving experiences of riding LiveWire electric motorcycles. The intricate pattern of the 19-inch PCB cast aluminum wheels evokes the dense pattern and frame found on printed circuit boards. The arched and tapered spoke design promotes lateral stiffness for improved handling performance, while pushing the boundaries of casting technology.

The Del Mar Launch Edition model debuts with an MSRP of $17,699, while the production version is expected to launch with a target MSRP of US$15,000. Delivery of the Launch Edition and production versions of the S2 Del Mar model is scheduled for spring 2023. All LiveWire S2 Del Mar motorcycles will be assembled at Harley-Davidson Vehicle Operations in York, Pennsylvania.
