Livewire, the first electric motorcycle by Harley Davidson is soon going to enter the market once again. The bike was released earlier but the company discontinued its production due to an issue. The issue was of the charging technology used in the bike which was discovered recently.
The customers that already brought the Livewire bike earlier were advised by the company to only charge their bikes at the dealership stores. But now they are permitted to charge the bike at home as the technology has been upgraded. The first customers of Livewire brought the bike at the rate of $30,000.
A spokesperson from the company of Harley Davidson sent an email in which he said, “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.”
