October 14, 2019: Reuters is reporting that Harley-Davidson has stopped production and deliveries of its first electric motorcycle, the LiveWire, due to a problem that the company dubbed a “non-standard condition.” The announcement is just another blow to the company’s electric-powered motorcycle project. The LiveWire’s orders and sales have reportedly not lived up to analysts’ forecasts and Harley-Davidson’s retailers are reporting that interest in the new model comes from existing and older riders.
