Harley-Davidson LiveWire Production Stops Due to Charging Issue

Harley-Davidson LiveWire Production Stops Due to Charging Issue

The company has ambitious plans to expand its product portfolio with its "More Roads to Harley-Davidson" strategy.

The news comes as a major blow for The Motor Company, as it is already facing the reality of cut shipments and weak sales during the last quarter.

Harley-Davidson just pulled the plug on its power move to produce an electric motorcycle that will appeal to a new generation of riders.

France 1-1 Turkey
We played against a very strong opponent. "We'll have to finish the job and reach our goal in the next two games". The result means Turkey remain above France at the top of Group H due to their 2-0 win in the reverse fixture.


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

"This is disappointing for all of us", said Michelle Kumbier, the company's chief operating officer. Harley said it stopped production and deliveries as it conducts additional testing and analysis. The existing customers are assured that they can continue to ride their bikes. The electric motorcycle made its India debut in August this year.

The LiveWire is claimed to offer 146 miles of range in city riding from an air-cooled 15.5 kilowatt-hour battery, which drops to 70 miles on the highway (there are no EPA figures since the agency does rate motorcycle efficiency). So far, LiveWire owners have been able to charge their bikes via standard wall outlets, a process that takes ten hours to complete. Shock absorption tasks are performed by 43 mm inverted Showa Separate Function Big Piston front fork and Showa Balance Free Rear Cushion-lite mono-shock - both adjustable. Harley-Davidson is distributing the LiveWire through a select number of approximately 200 dealers mainly located in urban areas.
