Production of Harley’s first electric motorbike halted

The Milwaukee-based motorcycle manufacturer says testing is progressing well

Harley-Davidson has stopped production and deliveries of its first electric motorcycle after reportedly discovering a problem with its charging mechanism, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The LiveWire motorcycle, which launched in North America and Western Europe last month, is being tested by the company as it investigates the problem with no clarity about when production of the motorcycle will resume.

Starting at a price of £28,995 ($36,658), the LiveWire motorcycle features a high-voltage battery composed of lithium-ion cells surrounded by a finned, cast-alluminum housing. The high-voltage battery provides a minimum of 98 miles (158 Km) of city range or 95 miles of combined stop-and-go and highway range.

Additionally it can be charged in two easy ways. First, by using the onboard Level 1 charger and power cord to connect to any standard household outlet and get a full charge overnight.

Second, for a faster charge, riders can visit any public Level 3 DC Fast Charge station for 80 per cent charge in 40 minutes or 100 per cent charge in an hour.

Harley-Davidson said it has been in close contact with its LiveWire dealers and customers, and they have been assured that they can continue to ride LiveWire motorcycles.
