On September 4, Angelle Sampey piloted a Harley-Davidson LiveWire in drag races. She managed to set a new speed record and the best time in the electric bike category.
Angell completed 1/8 of the mile in 7.017 seconds and the full 1/4 of the mile in 11.156 seconds. The speed was 110.35 mph (177.59 km/h). An impressive result, since the top speed of the Harley-Davidson LiveWire is limited to 110 mph, meaning that Angell squeezed 100% of the bike’s capabilities. The race took place at the “Denso Spart Plugs NHRA U.S. Nationals” event at the Lucas oil Raceway in Indianapolis.
“Let me tell you what’s amazing about this. I first piloted a LiveWire. I was looking forward to trying it out on the track. LiveWire is so easy to operate and pilot. Just turn the throttle and go ahead…»
