The legendary Wisconsin firm, Harley Davidson, is known for its loud motorcycles. During all the well-known gatherings of the famous motorcycle brand, the sound of the bike dominates the show. On June 19th, the firm presented “LiveWire”, an electric motorcycle, revolutionizing the brand. Is this a myth or a legendary technology?
