AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON To Feature Harley-Davidson's First Electric Motorcycle

Hey, remember that sexy motorcycle Scarlett Johansson's stunt double was seen riding on the Avengers: Age of Ultron set in Seoul, South Korea? Surprise! That's Harley-Davidson's first electric motorcycle, known as Project LiveWire.

Harley-Davidson has officially unveiled their very first electric motorcycle, and lo and behold, it's the very same motorcycle we saw on the Seoul, South Korea set of Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron. Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson's stunt double) was seen riding it during a chase sequence involving Captain America. The partnership between Marvel Studios and Harley-Davidson should come as no surprise as they the two companies have previously worked together on the two Captain America films, The First Avenger and The Winter Soldier.

LiveWire is a radical departure from the rumbling V-twin engines 111-year-old Wisconsin-based company is known for producing. LiveWire reportedly has: 74 horsepower, 52 foot-pounds of torque, 53-mile range per charge, can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4 seconds, and has an electronically restricted top speed of 92 mph.

Electric motorcycles have been on the market since 2008, but only make up 1 percent of overall sales. Though, it reasonable to believe more consumers will be looking for alternatives that are environmentally friendly and socially responsible. At the moment, LiveWire is not for sale, but it will be kicking off a nationwide tour in New York next week. No release date has been scheduled, nor is there an estimated retail price.
"Avengers: Age of Ultron" will bring the Marvel Universe's biggest heroes together again to face one of their biggest villains, with "Marvel's The Avengers" director Joss Whedon returning to write and direct the sequel."Marvel's The Avengers" was released in 2012 and went on to earn $1.5 billion worldwide, making it the third-largest grossing movie of all time. "Avengers: Age of Ultron" arrives in theaters May 1, 2015.

Cast includes: Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, James Spader and Thomas Kretschmann.

That's like ordering a hamburger and getting a tofuburger instead...World revolves around oil, no to electric, yes to a destroyed environment, it's the 'Merican way!
Starkasm - 6/22/2014, 7:45 PM
Harley going green. This I like.

I hate the helmet for Captain America! Not sure why it was so hard to make a modern costume from the comics. At this point I prefer him wearing his S.H.I.E.L.D. costume w/no helmet instead from CA:WS since he looks like such a clown with it on. SMH

...and the first time I watch a few minutes of that ridiculous World Cup bull-shit, my heart gets ripped out...stupid game of 'soccer', wtf, extra time determined by the officials? Was 4 minutes, but magically changed to 5, goal should have never happened, conspiracy?

Who am I fooling, could care less, NFL, the real 'football' will be back soon, thank god!
AlexanderLykins - 6/22/2014, 7:51 PM
I wonder how they are going to make that dude look like Scarlett Johansson.
Holycowdacubswin - 6/22/2014, 7:51 PM
I say boooooooooooo.......
AlexanderLykins - 6/22/2014, 7:51 PM
Darn right!

SuperCat - 6/22/2014, 7:54 PM

Never ridden a motorcycle in my life but I would imagine it's fun. I'd love to ride this one and quite possibly own it
mmadadamm - 6/22/2014, 7:59 PM
Black Widows costume looks ridiculous. They do way too much in the costume design department. There was literally no reason to change her outfit.

That thing looks awesome! Move into the 21st century, Americans...
Jollem - 6/22/2014, 8:02 PM
@AlexanderLykins - right. i was kinda geeking out and he was all "...no"

@Superhero96 - that's pretty sweet
batz11 - 6/22/2014, 8:04 PM
Yeah, that's a cool looking bike though...@AlexL, lol, the 'dude' has tracking marks on his face, cgi Scarlett? Maybe they could do that to my girlfriend? Haha
Bekss - 6/22/2014, 8:04 PM
Those blue lights on Widow are the Tron-like things?
eleven59 - 6/22/2014, 8:05 PM
I like the look... I'd have to charge it at work in order to make it home though...

Still waiting on a Sith version....

Though I do think this looks pretty cool.

Cool. Major collaborative marketing strategy for both entities.
ThePowerCosmic - 6/22/2014, 8:10 PM

Haha funny story!
DocDangerous - 6/22/2014, 8:14 PM
I love turning my bike on and making other vehicle car alarms go off. Thanks, but no thanks harley.
FirstAvenger - 6/22/2014, 8:22 PM
Awesome! Coming from a guy who lives in Harley country.
TheOverlord - 6/22/2014, 8:30 PM
Never had any interest in electric bikes before, but if Harley's making one, I might just try it out. Will never replace traditional for me, but hey - I can add it to the mix. Looks like a winner.
Jollem - 6/22/2014, 8:32 PM
@PowerCosmic -

Marqy - 6/22/2014, 8:33 PM
Going green ? nice, earned my respect ... no better movie for promotion than Avengers 2 ... between Harley going green and Tesla announcing no copright lawsuit against people who use their tech its great that the future is slowly coming ...
BaneNascent - 6/22/2014, 8:46 PM
It makes sense, the new E harley looks like Shield/stark tech and fits Black Widows costume really well. I'm sure it'll have her gauntlet Widow bite ammo cartridges. Captain America sports the classic Harley why not give Widow the new tech?

All the cool kids are doing it.
SnapperCarr - 6/22/2014, 8:46 PM
The bike looks awesome.
Comedian03 - 6/22/2014, 8:49 PM
An ELECTRIC motorcycle? Really?

That's like deciding you want a muscle car and buying one with a V6.

DaVinci31 - 6/22/2014, 8:50 PM
A beautiful bike, for a beautiful woman.

Nail and batz just made my night.......time for bed.

I don't know if I'm the only one or if this is old news but it's pretty interesting that the stunt double has tracking markers on her face and what looks to be a Scarlet Johansen wig/helmet.

Her suit also confirms that report about the Tron looking strips, adding the glow should probably happen in post. I think it makes sense she would have a different kind of suit for this movie, she would need slightly different gear for a battle vs. the spy/sleek look she had in CA:TWS. Different job, different tools/suit. Though her costume in CA:TWS (much like Caps) was by far her best to date.

As for the bike, it's pretty cool looking with a sweet sound and is better for the environment, don't know what there is to dislike.
