Video: Two months into the BikeReview LiveWire test, Jeff has the bike sorted and has figured out how to get the most battery range, 150km fanging it or regularly cruising for 200km.

After Simon Harris attended the Aussie launch, MDM did the Euro launch and Paul Bailey did our track test, Jeff was keen to test a LiveWire over a longer period to find out just what it is like to go electric. Here’s his second update video on the bike, after two months.
