Sanchez could need ankle surgery, says Chile coach
It's a shame because he had started playing again with Inter and scored two goals, while also playing in the Champions League . Chile coach Reinaldo Rueda told Radio Cooperativa: 'Alexis seems to have a suffered a small blow to the ankle'.

A statement from a Harley-Davidson spokesperson said that the problem requires more testing and analysis, but the company did not provide specifics around what the "nonstandard condition" might be. The company had recently commenced the deliveries of the Dollars 29,799 (INR 21.29 lakh - as per conversion rate on 15 October 2019) product. The electric motorcycle made its India debut in August this year.

The LiveWire sells from $29,799 and it offers a range of 95 miles (152 km) per charge and 0 to 60 mph acceleration of under 3.5 seconds.

LiveWire owners had been able to charge their bikes using their standard wall outlets, although a charge can take 10 hours. Shock absorption tasks are performed by 43 mm inverted Showa Separate Function Big Piston front fork and Showa Balance Free Rear Cushion-lite mono-shock - both adjustable. Offering millennials an affordable (less than $30,000) and clean alternative to the iconic motorcycle seemed to light the way for future sales, even though the forecast was only to produce around 1% of Harley-Davidson's total vehicles.
