Harley-Davidson Puts Production Of The LiveWire On Pause

Harley-Davidson Puts Production Of The LiveWire On Pause

It says existing bikes are safe but must be charged at dealerships, which will take an hour, rather than using the lower-voltage outlets in homes.

Harley-Davidson hasn't released sales numbers for the LiveWire but few of the bikes are likely to be in customer hands since deliveries only commenced in October. The American bike maker has discovered a non-standard condition in the final quality check. But the Wall Street Journal, which first reported the news, said the company told dealers last week there was a problem with its charging equipment.

The motorcycle company is hoping the electric bike, which retails at $30,000, will boost sales in the United States market, the Wall Street Journal reported, also noting that the company decreased its motorcycle shipments forecast back in July and had less sales than usual in its last quarter.

While the company said its testing is progressing "well", it did not offer a timeline as to when the production will resume.

Deliveries of the bike had already begun earlier this summer, complete with free charging of 500 kWh over two years thanks to a deal Harley struck with Electrify America.

Harley-Davidson was expected to introduce the LiveWire in India in 2020 but now with the production suspended, we believe it'll get further delayed. We are in close contact with our LiveWire dealers and customers and have assured them they can continue to ride LiveWire motorcycles. The motorcycle boasts a top speed of 110 miles per hour (117 km/h) and a 0-60 miles per hour (0-96 km/h) acceleration time of 3.0 seconds.
