UPDATE 1-Harley quarterly revenue hit by two-week production shutdown

Recasts lead to add fall in revenue, more details from the results, background

- Harley-Davidson Inc HOG reported a fall in quarterly revenue, hurt by the motorcycle maker's two-week production shutdown in May that delayed shipments and affected dealer inventories.

The 119-year-old Milwaukee-based company had suspended assembly and shipments of motorcycles, excluding electric models, in its manufacturing plants in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania in May following a regulatory compliance issue at a third-party parts supplier.

Harley did disclose specifics related to the issue.

Sales from motorcycles and related products fell about 5% to $1.27 billion in the second quarter, and total revenue fell 4% to about $1.46 billion.

Net profit for the 119-year old motorcycle maker came in at $215.8 million, or $1.46 per share, in the second quarter, compared with $206.3 million, or $1.33 per share, a year earlier.
