Harley-Davidson’s First-Ever Electric Bike Resumes Production After the “Non-Standard” Issue Fixed


In a continues effort to retain its stride as “king of the motorcycles,” Harley-Davidson has successfully resolved the charging issues persisting in its first-ever electric motorbike and has resumed its production as planned. The Harley-Davidson electric bike, known as LiveWire Motorcycle, saw a production halt when in-company testing proved the bike in “non-standard” condition.

Although the US motorbike manufacturing giant hinted at a “non-standard” issue in broad term, they didn’t clearly mention what specifically the problem was. However, it was later alleged by some inquiring media outlets that the problem was actually in the charging section of the electric bike.

Despite the technical glitch, Harley-Davidson didn’t call up any of the models that are already running on the roads. The company halted the production of its electric bike for a while until the problem is solved.

“After completing rigorous analysis this week, we have resumed LiveWire production and deliveries,” Harley-Davidson spokesperson said to a media outlet.

Harley-Davidson has not let this minor incident go by without any reverence to its marketing for the new electric bike: they gleefully boasted about how good and on-plan their quality control assurance is working. The Harley-Davidson’s LiveWire is a 105 horsepower that is priced at $29, 799, a moderate price indeed for such a featuresome vehicle.

LiveWire is among the first of the future electric bikes lineup that has been proposed by the famous American motorcycle maker. And not only motorbikes, but Harley-Davidson is also planning to introduce its own league of electric scooters and bicycles as well.

But with a bad omen of production halt in the very first of the lineup of electric motorbikes, Harley-Davidson has to ensure that the next time they drop a product in the market, it should have been checked and properly tested before going public.
