LiveWire, the leading electric motorcycle manufacturer, is excited to announce the all-new S2 Mulholland, which goes on sale today with inventory available immediately at all U.S. and Canadian dealers. Mulholland represents a shift in design at LiveWire as the company has reimagined the profile and silhouette of the motorcycle—traditionally informed by the gas tank—while also using sustainable materials in key components for the first time.

Priced at $15,999 USD and $21,999 CAD, S2 Mulholland is available for purchase immediately.

Design Evolution

As LiveWire’s performance cruiser, S2 Mulholland’s design departs from traditional internal combustion motorcycles in the cruiser category—which typically celebrate the gas tank—as the electric S2 platform provided the design team with the opportunity to create a new profile and experience that prominently displays both the brake lines and wiring harness, creating a stronger connection between the human interface of the rider and motorcycle.

First Use of Sustainable Materials

S2 Mulholland continues to push the envelope of design further with LiveWire’s first use of sustainable and eco-friendly materials across key touch points on the bike including bodywork, seat, and secondary plastic components.

Mulholland’s front and rear fenders are manufactured using CAP Hemp bio-composite. The motorcycle’s radiator shrouds, and wiring caddies are manufactured from HYLON® OCEAN (PCR Nylon 6), the origin of which are discarded ocean fishing nets, further reducing the reliance on petroleum-based plastics. LiveWire also manufactured the seat using petroleum-free, recyclable silicone rather than leather or vinyl.

Additionally, the bike will be available in an optional eco-friendly unpainted Lunar White finish that elevates the CAP Hemp material while minimizing the use of traditional plastics and paints—efforts unseen in this category prior to the launch of Mulholland. Liquid Black will be the sole painted option available.

Performance & Charging

S2 Mulholland is based on LiveWire’s S2 platform, and the riding characteristics of the motorcycle demonstrate the same level of performance established with S2 Del Mar. Weighing 432 pounds, Mulholland is capable of a 3.3 second zero to sixty time thanks to the 84 horsepower and 194 ft-lb of torque available to the rider. The 10.5 kWh pack contributes 121 miles of city riding range and 73 miles of highway range at 55mph to the riding experience. Mulholland also shares the same charging technology available on Del Mar, with both Level 1 and Level 2 equipped as standard.

Charging Times
L1, 20-80% 5.9hrs
L2, 20-80% 78 min

Riding Experience

While S2 Mulholland utilizes the same S2 platform, the riding experience has been reshaped by the rider triangle and updated standard equipment which diverges dramatically from Del Mar. Using a six-inch handlebar riser, the handlebars are positioned higher and further back, allowing the rider to sit with a more upright riding position, reinforcing the riding style and the performance cruiser experience in contrast to the flat track inspired Del Mar. Mulholland’s 19 inch front and 17 inch rear wheels come equipped with Dunlop Sportmax Roadsmart IV tires, to utilize Mulholland’s 55°/50° left and right lean angles.

Accessories

Expected throughout Q2 and Q3, a range of S2 Mulholland accessories including passenger seats and pegs, windscreens, soft and hard bags, luggage racks, and cosmetic pieces will be launching to further add to the unique riding experience and visual appeal of S2 Mulholland.

World Premier & Availability

The introduction of the new electric performance cruiser, S2 Mulholland, will be limited to the U.S. and Canada for 2024, with deliveries for additional markets currently planned for 2025. In the U.S. and Canada Mulholland can be found at LiveWire retail partner locations nationwide.
