Harley-Davidson Halts LiveWire Production

Written by  on Tuesday, 15 October 2019 17:22

Multiple news outlets, including the Wall Street Journal and Reuters are reporting that Harley-Davidson has halted production of the electric-powered LiveWire motorcycle pending resolution of issues relating the charging system. Harley-Davidson has not released any details at this time.

The stoppage of production on the key LiveWire model comes at a difficult time for the Milwaukee-based manufacturer following the release of downgraded production forecasts in July for the current fiscal year. Targetted at non-traditional Harley-Davidson owners, the LiveWire is a key component of the company's More Roads to Harley-Davidson initiative, which includes the planned introduction of multiple electric vehicles.

Harley-Davidson is scheduled to release its third quarter financial results on October 22, 2019.
