Harley-Davidson puts the brakes on electric bike
[BBC] Harley-Davidson has halted production of its first electric motorbike after finding a glitch in its charging system.
The company began shipping the £28,995 105-horsepower LiveWire bikes to dealers in the US last month.
It says existing bikes are safe but must be charged at dealerships, which will take an hour, rather than using the lower-voltage outlets in homes.
Yeah, that's gonna be a sales point
Harley-Davidson told Reuters it had discovered a "non-standard condition".
Once fully charged, the bike can travel 146 miles at low-speed.
