Maybe HD should install pedals like a bicycle. That way if your battery goes dead, you will be able to pedal your way home to re charge. Ooops. You cannot recharge it at home.

Local dealership called me yesterday, the fella goes by the name Crash, sounds like the guy to let test ride your bike after service.
 He wanted to let me know they are having an open house this Saturday and wanted to set up a time for me to test ride a new bike and wondered if the LiveWire was of any interest to me. I asked if the charging problem was fixed or not, he said no but the bike can be recharged at the dealership. I than asked when it was projected to be fixed and his response was,
 " It is fine, the concern was battery temp while being recharged at home and the they will start to release the bikes sold when they have the charging system perfect as they have with other bikes and problems they had, being it has the H-D name on it."
I had to pull the phone away from my face cause I was laughing.

Guys were standing in line to test ride a Livewire @ Biketoberfest yesterday. I have to admit, They look cool. Not something I need, it just wouldn't work based on distance for me. We recently bought a new car and a neighbor wanted to know if I was spending that much money why didn't I buy a Tesla? I told him there were time I wanted to actually leave the state and a Tesla wouldn't allow that without a charge. He thought Tesla had a gasoline motor to recharge the battery when needed.

I use my Tesla for road trips often. Stopping to charge isn't bad, at all. It gives us a little time to get out and stretch our legs every few hours, and maybe grab a bite to eat.

We stayed at a Best Western in Missoula for a couple days this summer.
They have a charging station there, we saw 2 Tesla's towed to it for recharging 1 day and 1 dropped off the next.

So as I understand it, you can ride your VERY limited range HD Livewire to the dealership to charge? So by the time you back home, you have just enough charge left to return to the dealer to recharge again? What a joke.

Nothing like a QA department over reaction & shutting down production to get you some buyer remorse and nervousness in the marketplace.  Bad juju.

A guess which is just a guess is that HD encountered this charging problem somewhere during the testing phase.  Another guess is some (many?) potential LW buyers have reconsidered because they do not wish to risk burning down their garages while the battery bike is on charge.

Isolated to a single vehicle.  LOL.  Nice spin in an effort to control chaos.  More like isolated to a single vehicle cause they only tested one.  Probably had to flash them all with a software update.

Maybe they have only sold one LiveWire.  At that point it would be a 100% failure of the charging station.

Interesting quote from that article, Greg:

"We take pride in our rigorous quality assurance measures and our drive to deliver the world’s best motorcycles."

Maybe they need to tattoo that on every line worker, QA/QC inspector, manager and customer service rep... ;D
