Last week here at AMERiders we gave you the news that production of the Harley Davidson Livewire Motorcycle was being paused. Well, friends, we have an update on that for you. They are restarting production that is great news for anyone that wants one.
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.A Harley-Davidson Motor Company spokesperson states that LiveWire production and deliveries have resumed.
We have confirmed that this was a singular occurrence on one motorcycle. Our rigorous analysis showed our strong quality assurance measures are working as designed. The findings also reaffirmed the strength of LiveWire’s technology and product design. Production has resumed and we are delivering to dealers.
We gave you the information previously that the first customers of the $30,000 Harley Davidson Livewire Motorcycle, which just started shipping in September, can resume charging their motorcycles at home. (The company previously advised customers to only charge at dealerships until the issue was resolved.)
Harley-Davidson has repeatedly declined to specify the problem. But whatever it was, the company claims the issue was only found on one motorcycle after “rigorous analysis.”

Let’s face it the entire Livewire project has not gone well for Harley-Davidson. Introduced at CES 2019, the company’s first fully-electric bike has been delayed, and it has received extensive criticism for being too expensive, and a slow seller. All this for a bike that has the expectations of saving Harley, and bringing younger riders to the storied, Milwaukee-based brand.
