SEOUL, Jan. 8 (Yonhap) -- Harley-Davidson's first electric motorcycle LiveWire equipped with Samsung SDI Co.'s battery pack will be unveiled during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the South Korean battery maker said Tuesday.

Harley-Davidson and Samsung SDI have collaborated on the building of the electric motorcycle project for over four years to target tech-savvy, premium consumers.

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

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

The American motorcycle manufacturer will show off the LiveWire during CES that runs through Friday and accept preorders during the event for shipping in the fall, it noted.
