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. 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.”
