LAS VEGAS: American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson's first electric motorcycle "LiveWire" equipped with Samsung SDI Co.'s battery pack, would be unveiled during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) here, the South Korean battery maker said on Tuesday.

The electric motorcycle runs on a battery pack, comprising lithium-ion cells made by Samsung SDI.

LiveWire's range is approximately 180 km, and it can do zero to 100 kph in just 3.5 seconds, Samsung SDI claimed.
