Harley-Davidson resumes LiveWire electric motorcycle production

The Harley-Davidson LiveWire is once again in production. "Customers may continue riding their LiveWire motorcycle and are able to charge the motorcycle through all methods".

The company said the "non-standard condition" that led it to warn owners not to charge their motorcycles on home power outlets was tracked back to a single occurrence and that they can resume the normal operation of their motorcycles.

That's certainly great news for the MoCo and hopefully for the LiveWire. A designer working for Harley-Davidson can also be seen working on the clay model of a motorcycle's fairing, while the company's old Harley VR1000 fully-faired motorcycle.

The production stoppage put a damper on Harley-Davidson's first foray into electrification just weeks after deliveries of LiveWire began to ramp up.

If it does make it to production, expect this faired bike to use one of the company's new DOHC, liquid-cooled V-twin motors.

After launching its first fully electric motorcycle, the Livewire, Harley Davidson seems to be interested in re-entering the fully-faired motorcycle segment. We will keep you up to date with more information as it becomes available.
