After a brief pause, production has resumed on the Harley-Davidson LiveWire.
- LiveWire is Harley-Davidson’s first all-electric motorcycle.
- Production was halted earlier this week after discovery of a “non-standard condition.”
- Problem was confirmed to be confined to a single motorcycle.
Earlier this week, Harley-Davidson stopped production on its LiveWire electric motorcycle after discovering a “non-standard condition.”

Today, the Harley-Davidson Motor Company made the following announcement:
“After completing rigorous analysis this week, we have resumed LiveWire production and deliveries. Customers may continue riding their LiveWire motorcycle and are able to charge the motorcycle through all methods. Temporarily stopping LiveWire production allowed us to confirm that the non-standard condition identified on one motorcycle was a singular occurrence. We take pride in our rigorous quality assurance measures and our drive to deliver the world’s best motorcycles.”
WHY THIS MATTERS
As we noted when production was paused, Harley-Davidson is under the microscope with LiveWire, the most important motorcycle launch for the company in decades. Announcing that the production issue was extremely isolated should ease the minds of potential buyers for LiveWire and future electric motorcycles from the Motor Company.
