LiveWire, a significant motorcycle manufacturer, has issued its first official recall due to a software problem in the Vehicle Supervisory Controller of certain 2024 LiveWire S2 Del Mar electric motorcycles. This issue could potentially cause the motorcycle to shut down while in motion, posing a risk of a crash. The recall affects 523 motorcycles produced between July 26, 2023, and January 30, 2024.

To address the problem, LiveWire offers two solutions for the affected motorcycles: an over-the-air software update via the telematics control unit or a manual update at a LiveWire dealer, both at no cost to customers. Motorcycles manufactured on or around February 7, 2024, have already been equipped with the updated software.

LiveWire has informed dealers about the issue and instructed them not to deliver any affected motorcycles until the software update is completed. The company has scheduled notifications to dealers from February 8 to March 4, 2024, and to motorcycle owners from March 5 to March 12, 2024. Owners seeking more information can contact LiveWire or the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline.
