The partnership between Harley-Davidson and Marvel Comics takes a new and most interesting direction, as the two parties have recently announced that the upcoming Avengers movie, Age of Ultron will be starring the Project livewire electric motorcycle introduced weeks ago by the Milwaukee manufacturer.
The movie is expected to arrive in theaters May 1st, 2015. The Black Widow character played by Scarlett Johansson will be using the Livewire for some haute tension chase scenes. It will be funny to try and estimate the distance the Black Widow will cover in the new Avengers movie, because the current specs of Harley’s electric machine still leave quite a lot to be desired. With an approximate range of only 30 miles (48 km), the Black Widow should better sort out het things pretty fast and in a neighborhood where she can use some charging, too.

Still on the funny side of things, it would have been so much better if Harley decided to use the Livewire in an X Men movie. Storm could have taken very good care about the recharging duties, providing MoCo’s debut electric motorcycle with a truly impressive range. Plus, her black and shiny leather catsuit would have definitely been a glorious sight, as well.

Written and directed by Joss Whedon, Avengers: Age of Ultron also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Thomas Kretschmann, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and James Spader.

Even though the Livewire still has a long way to go until a decently-specced (and priced) production version will be available, one thing is clear as daylight: Harley really knows how to promote its bikes, and with such campaigns, it’s easy to expect that the Livewire, or whatever name will the commercial bike get, will be a sought-after machine.
