We got to know that Harley has stopped its much-acclaimed electric motorcycle LiveWire as they have found some issues.
Harley-Davidson stops LiveWire production.
LiveWire is the first electric motorcycle that comes from Harley and it was released at EICMA last year while Harley had just begun its deliveries to its customers when we get this news.
In the statement, Harley has said.
“As we lead in the electrification of motorcycles, we have delivered our first LiveWire motorcycles to authorized LiveWire dealers. We recently discovered a non-standard condition during a final quality check.
We stopped production and deliveries and began additional testing and analysis, which is progressing well. We are in close contact with our LiveWire dealers and customers and have assured them they can continue to ride LiveWire motorcycles. As usual, we’re keeping high quality as our top priority.
For customers who have taken delivery of LiveWire motorcycles, we’ve assured them they can continue to ride, and we’ve asked them to only use DC fast charging at this time.”
Back in June 2019, we did have an initial set of the information below is that information that talks about its performance, body, battery and more. It comes in three color schemes.
- Horsepower: 78 kW (105 HP)
- Torque: 86 ft. Lbs (116.6 Nm)
- Unlike internal combustion engines, 100% of rated torque is achieved at the moment you twist the throttle
- 0 to 60 miles (96.6 km / h): 3.0 seconds
- 60 miles (96.6 km / h) to 80 miles (128.7 km / h): 1.9 seconds
- 146 miles (235 km) in the city area
- 95 miles (152 km) range with a combination of stop and go and highway driving.
While we are unsure as to what the exact problem is but the issue revolves around the AC charging of the bike.
The charger is placed under the seat of the rider.
While the issue doesn’t seem to threaten and if you look at Harleys statement
“For customers who have taken delivery of LiveWire motorcycles, we’ve assured them they can continue to ride, and we’ve asked them to only use DC fast charging at this time.”
It is not a threat. We feel that this issue is insignificant but Harley doesn’t want to risk neither should they and we are confident that they will soon start the production.
