NHTSA recall affects 2,700 motorcycles

A recall by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration potentially affects more than 2,700 motorcycles equipped with anti-lock brake systems.

Indian Motorcycle Company is recalling certain 2019 Scout and Scout Bobber motorcycles equipped with Anti-Lock Brake Systems (ABS). After the manufacturing process, air may remain trapped within the brake system, possibly reducing brake performance. Reduced brake performance can increase the risk of a crash.

Indian will notify owners, and dealers will perform a brake fluid bleed of the front and rear ABS to evacuate the air, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a recall start date.
