Harley-Davidson livewire Stories October 18

Harley-Davidson appears to have found some type of issue with the LiveWire, so the company has halted production of the electric motorcycle while it investigates.


Update: A Harley-Davidson Motor Company spokesperson tells us that LiveWire production and deliveries have resumed.

After completing rigorous analysis this week, we have resumed LiveWire production and deliveries. Customers may continue riding their LiveWire motorcycle and are able to charge the motorcycle through all methods. Temporarily stopping LiveWire production allowed us to confirm that the non-standard condition identified on one motorcycle was a singular occurrence. We take pride in our rigorous quality assurance measures and our drive to deliver the world’s best motorcycles.

We have confirmed that this was a singular occurrence on one motorcycle. Our rigorous analysis showed our strong quality assurance measures are working as designed. The findings also reaffirmed the strength of LiveWire’s technology and product design. Production has resumed and we are delivering to dealers.
