LiveWire Group, the innovative electric motorcycle brand developed by industry pioneer Harley-Davidson, has selected Airbiquity® to enable remote software updates for its global electric motorcycle portfolio. Airbiquity, a global leader in connected vehicle services, will provide its OTAmatic® solution to ensure LiveWire riders enjoy a seamless and reliable over-the-air (OTA) software update experience, minimizing inconveniences or downtime.
Launched in 2019, LiveWire’s electric motorcycles have since garnered attention and praise for their performance and design. OTA updates offer expanded opportunities for LiveWire to remotely update their electric motorcycles’ operating software, ensuring optimal performance, safety, and security. With a dedicated focus on the electric vehicle (EV) sector, LiveWire sought a market-leading, automotive-grade OTA solution to meet customer satisfaction and enhance the performance of their products.
Kamyar Moinzadeh, President and CEO at Airbiquity, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, saying, “LiveWire is a pioneer in the electric motorcycle industry with an outstanding product portfolio. Working with LiveWire to integrate OTAmatic into their vehicles has been a terrific experience and we’re proud to contribute to their current and future success.”
LiveWire’s majority shareholder is Harley-Davidson, Inc., which spun off the brand in 2022 as the first publicly traded electric motorcycle company in the United States. Building on a decade of Harley-Davidson’s experience in the EV sector, LiveWire aims to develop cutting-edge technology and invest in the capabilities needed to lead the transformation of motorcycling.
Airbiquity has been a global leader in connected vehicle services and a pioneer in the development and engineering of automotive telematics technology. The company has worked with automakers and automotive suppliers worldwide to deploy highly scalable, manageable, and secure connected vehicle service programs for millions of vehicles in over 60 countries.
The partnership between LiveWire and Airbiquity highlights the growing demand for advanced connected vehicle services in the EV market. As electric motorcycles continue to gain popularity, this collaboration paves the way for a more reliable and seamless user experience for riders.
