    Harley Halts Output of Electric Model Pivotal to Revival Bid

    (Bloomberg) -- Harley-Davidson Inc. has halted production of LiveWire, the debut electric bike it’s counting on to attract new riders.The motorcycle maker recently discovered an issue during final quality checks, according to an emailed statement that doesn’t provide details. Harley said it stopped production and deliveries as it conducts additional testing and analysis.Chief Executive Officer Matt Levatich, who’s presided over 10 consecutive quarters of declining U.S. retail sales, has positioned LiveWire as key to building a new generation of customers. While it’s easier to operate -- there’s no clutch or gears to figure out, just a twist-and-go throttle -- analysts have questioned whether its $29,799 price tag will attract the younger riders the company seeks.“We made a deliberate decision to launch a halo product to demonstrate what’s possible in electric -- a no-excuses electric Harley-Davidson -- and we feel very good that we’ve done that,” Levatich said during an earnings call in July.LiveWire deliveries were initially supposed to be delivered in August, but the company said during an investor day on Sept. 24 that it was holding back the bikes to make sure they were perfect, according to James Hardiman, an analyst at Wedbush Securities. Pre-orders started in January.Harley shares briefly reversed gains and plunged as much as 2% before trading little changed as of 2:50 p.m. New York time. The stock has risen about 3% this year, trailing the 18% gain by the S&P 500.The Wall Street Journal reported earlier Monday that Harley told some of its dealers last week it was suspending output as it conducted tests on the bike’s charging mechanism, citing a memo from Chief Operating Officer Michelle Kumbier. The company asked customers and dealers to only use a professional type of charger available at dealerships rather than home electrical outlets, the Journal said.(Updates with CEO’s strategy in third paragraph)To contact the reporter on this story: Gabrielle Coppola in New York at gcoppola@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Craig Trudell at ctrudell1@bloomberg.net, Chester DawsonFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Harley struggles to fire up new generation of riders with electric bike debut

    Harley-Davidson Inc is betting on electric motorcycles to attract the next generation of younger and more environmentally conscious riders to reverse declining U.S. sales. The bike costs nearly as much as a Tesla Model 3, and aims for a market that does not really exist: young, "green" and affluent first-time motorcyclists. The sleek sport bike has been available for preorder in the United States since January.

    Harley struggles to fire up young riders

    Harley-Davidson is betting on electric motorcycles to attract the next generation of younger and more environmentally conscious riders. But as Harley ships its first "LiveWire" bikes to dealers, there is little evidence the 116-year-old brand is catching on with new young customers. Dealers tell Reuters the problem is price. The LiveWire costs nearly $30,000 - putting it beyond the reach of young debt-ridden college grads . And Harley isn't offering discounts or incentives. What's more - LiveWire's limited range of 146 miles on a single charge is also hampering sales. Dealers say the bulk of the preorders are coming from existing users and old riders. Harley would not comment on the preorders. The iconic American manufacturer badly needs young customers. Last year, it posted its steepest sales drop in four years in the U.S., and sales are expected to slide again this year.

    2 Dudes review: Cake Kalk& Electric Motorcycle

    Most electric vehicles are playthings for the wealthy. They can easily cost $50,000 or more, even with federal subsidies. And you’ll basically need another car if you take road trips where charging stations aren’t reliably available. But what about a sleek electric motorcycle for $14,000? That’s in the wave runner / snowmobile category, putting in the recreation budget rather than family transportation. Hey, times are good. A little splurge never hurt anybody. And Junior can wait couple of years to get braces.
