The Indian Motorcycle Company is recalling a bunch of 2017-2018 Indian Scout motorcycles right now, which includes the Scout Sixty and and Scout Bobber variants.
All told, 4,185 motorcycles are affected by a recall that concerns the anti-locking brakes system (ABS), which may have air left in the system after the assembly process.
Since air in the brake lines can impact a motorcycle’s braking ability, Indian has decided to recall the affected machines, in order to ensure rider safety.
To remedy the issue, Indian will notify affected owners, and Indian dealers will bleed the front and rear anti-lock brake system, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin this month, July 2018.
Concerned Indian Scout owners may contact Indian customer service at 1-877-204-3697. Indian’s number for this recall is I-18-07. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
