LiveWire is now listed on the New York Stock Exchange, becoming the first publicly-traded electric motorcycle manufacturer in the U.S. The S2 Del Mar features the company’s proprietary ARROW architecture, exclusively designed at LiveWire Labs in Mountain View, California and the Product Development Center in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Reservations for the S2 Del Mar open today, following the bell’s ring at the NYSE in Manhattan’s Financial District.
The S2 Del Mar aims to deepen riders' experiences with the world around them. Built for agility, the S2 Del Mar invites modern-day adventurers to champion offerings in the electric bike division as contemporary modes of transport. The e-motorcycle will be available in three colors at the time of its release — Nimbus Gray, Nightfall Blue, and Asphalt Black — and will retail at an MSRP of $16,999 USD once available for purchase. The S2 Del Mar is distinguished for its look, sound and feel, boasting a scalable, modular system slated to inform LiveWire's growing portfolio.
In celebration of the company’s listing, LiveWire is hosting a pop-up today and tomorrow at Studio 525 in Chelsea previewing the new bike collection alongside artwork by Eric Haze. The event is open to the public on the 28 and will run from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
LiveWire is separating as an individual subsidiary of Harley-Davidson. The company's first electric motorcycle model, the LiveWire ONE, revved into the future with a 3-second acceleration rate of 0-60-mph, a keyless transponder and 120-volt current in household and commercial charging units. The S2 Del Mar builds upon LiveWire ONE's design codes while doubling down on ARROW architecture with proprietary battery, motor, charging and control systems.
The initial launch edition of the S2 Del Mar sold out this past May in 18 minutes. Today marks the next official production launch when the motorcycle will be available to reserve on LiveWire’s website. Stay tuned on Hypebeast for in-depth specs on the S2 Del Mar.
