The LiveWire is one of the first battery-powered bikes from a major motorcycle maker and a dramatic departure for Harley-Davidson. Does it have the stuff to electrify the brand? Fox News Autos editor thew a leg over one to find out.
The Milwaukee-based motorcycle manufacturer has confirmed the move, which was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.
In a statement, Harley-Davidson told Fox News Autos that it “recently discovered a non-standard condition during a final quality check,” and has begun “additional testing and analysis, which is progressing well.”
The company also informed current owners not to charge their bikes with standard home outlets and to only use DC fast-charging stations until further notice, but said that they are safe to ride.
The news comes a week after Reuters reported that Harley-Davidson dealers were having difficulty selling the motorcycle, which is the company’s first and only electric model and has a $29,799 base price.
Harley-Davidson has not said how many LiveWires have been sold.
