Harley-Davidson has restarted production and deliveries of LiveWire, its first electric bike, after resolving an issue with the bike’s charging technology.

The company has said that the first owners of the all-electric motorbike from the Milwaukee brand can resume charging their motorcycles from home after warning them to stop home-based charging until the issue was resolved.

Whilst Harley-Davidson won’t say what exactly was the problem with LiveWire home charging, it’s believed to now have been narrowed-down to a single motorcycle that had undergone so-called ‘rigorous analysis’ .

Speaking to American outlet The Verge, a spokesman for Harley-Davidson 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.”
