LiveWire S2 Del Mar is a perfect electric motorcycle, though the only downside being its still pricey for a motorcycle that will be used largely in a commuter role by most riders. The LiveWire S2 Del Mar is priced around $15,000, though inflation pressures and supply chain drama has spiked the price up to $16,999. The price range is much less compared to the LiveWire One’s price, yet it’s still a bit out of reach for a lot of riders.Harley-Davidson’s LiveWire S2 Del Mar Electric Motorcycle_1
