moto adonis customizes harley-davidson livewire into electric batcycle

established in 2012, custom workshop moto adonis reveals a first EV model with a harley-davidson livewire, called the rule breaker. the name suits the brief; the designers had no limits to the design otherwise than to create a futuristic, black and cool battery-powered sportbike. the result would even make batman envious.

moto adonis’ design of the harley-davidson livewire custom began by removing the stock body plastic and replacing it with hand-formed aluminum. a reinvented seat and rear cowl fit the charging cable – a key element to remember. across the bodywork and seat, several LED lights are integrated, which can change color via the owner’s smartphone.

perfectly fitting the brief, motor adonis finished the harley-davidson livewire custom by painting it in a semi gloss black. the color accentuates the design’s batcycle style, its aggressive cut-outs, armoured layers and muscled front cowl.

the custom’s electrics needed to remain the same as the stock EV model for safety and warranty
