Harley Trike Recalled for Brake Problem

Dec. 17, 2019 – Harley-Davidson is recalling its 2019-2020 Tri-Glide motorcycles over concerns of possible “unintended activation of one rear brake.” The recall, affecting 12,624 Harley Trikes, involves the “Trike Traction Control System,” which Harley says may respond to incorrectly to a faulty rear-wheel speed signal by activating one of the rear brakes. Specific models included in the recall are:

  • 2019-2020 Tri-Glide Ultra (FLHTCUTG)
  • 2019-2020 Freewheeler (FLRT)
  • 2020 CVO Tri-Glide (FLHTCUTGSE)

Harley-Davidson has notified owners, stating that dealerships will fix the problem free of charge.

Harley Stops Electric Motorcycle Production due to Charging Problem

October 15, 2019 – Harley-Davidson has temporarily halted production and distribution of LiveWire, the company’s first electric motorcycle, due to a problem with the bike’s charging equipment, according to the Wall Street Journal[1]. Harley maintains that the LiveWire is still safe to ride, but is asking owners to only charge the motorcycles at dealerships, as there may be a problem with plugging them into low voltage outlets.

“We recently discovered a non-standard condition during a final quality check; stopped production and deliveries; and began additional testing and analysis, which is progressing well,” a spokesperson for Harley-Davidson said. “We are in close contact with our LiveWire dealers and customers and have assured them they can continue to ride LiveWire motorcycles.”

Harley Davidson Oil Leak Recall

June 5, 2017 – Harley-Davidson said an oil line on the affected motorcycles may come loose, causing oil to leak onto the rear tire’s path.

  • Electra Glide Ultra Classic
