Delay in Shipments

Any ideas on why the Livewire has been delayed almost two months? I've maintained HD found a problem and has been tight lipped about it. Now I found this article today.

I've had my pre-order in since January and wish HD would just come out and give an update on the problem. Even though the company says delivery has started no dealers in Texas have seen one come in.

When ordered my Livewire was scheduled to arrive in August........mid September...........mid October, and suddenly the news came out yesterday (while we were told deliveries have started since a week!)

What the **** have they be doing for months?
In short they are just telling BS while asking for premium $$$$!

As noted in the article, "DO NOT CHARGE AT HOME".

This from CEO Matt Levatich back in July:
“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.
Wonder what kind of spin he'll put on this problem? A big help would be to lower base price 5K.

Yeah for sure, if this was for an electric car this would be a huge blow.
