(Reuters) -Motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson (NYSE:) has temporarily halted production at its York, Pennsylvania, assembly plant for the second time in just over 12 months due to a parts shortage, the company said.
Production at the facility, its largest with nearly 1,000 union employees, will resume on June 13, it noted in an emailed statement.
Harley-Davidson did not specify the parts involved.
Production was halted in May 2022 due to a brake hose problem from a third-party supplier, the company said later.
Harley-Davidson in April reported better-than-expected first-quarter results even as retail sales in North America fell.
Sales from motorcycles and related products grew 21% to $1.56 billion in its most recent quarter, driven by a rise in wholesale shipments and continued price increases.
