Harley-Davidson to temporarily halt production of LiveWire electric motorcycle

Harley-Davidson halts production of new electric motorcycles

Harley-Davidson said on Monday it has stopped production and deliveries of the LiveWire, its first electric motorcycle after discovering a glitch in the final quality checks.

Harley-Davidson Chief Marketing Officer Heather Malenshek on the company's new electric motorcycle, the LiveWire and the growing use of technology used in motorcycles.

Direct-current charging stations at Harley dealerships can reload the bike's battery in about an hour, according to the Journal.

Additional testing to diagnose and rectify the issue has begun but there is no word from the manufacturer as to when the the production will resume. For now, production and deliveries have ceased, though the company assured those who've taken delivery of a LiveWire that the motorcycle is A-OK to ride. "As usual, we're keeping high quality as our top priority".

The charging issue, says Harley, does not compromise the safety of the LiveWire to operate.

Could the LiveWire be losing its glow?

LiveWire - priced at US$29,799 - has been available for preorder in the United States since January. Harley is facing multiple problems as baby boomer buyers age out of motorcycling and the belief that Millenials apparently have little interest in motorcycling or do not have the money to purchase Harley's machines.
