Harley-Davidson LiveWire shorts out, but fires back up again.
The short version:
- Harley-Davidson has resumed manufacturing LiveWire electric motorcycles.
- The company had temporarily stopped production due to an “issue” with the charging equipment.
- HD says they have conducted tests and found the issue was a singular occurrence on one motorcycle.
- The company has alerted LiveWire owners that they can resume charging at home.
I’m glad Harley-Davidson is being cautious, but I would really like to know what the “issue” was with charging. It must have been a big dean in order for them to stop production and notify owners they shouldn’t charge at home. Over-heating? Fire? We don’t know. The notification certainly cost HD revenue, but more than that, it puts a black eye on the LiveWire launch.
What do you think Harley-Davidson needs to do to recover from this?
