Not only car makers find themselves in the situation of having to recall certain of their vehicles. Harley-Davidson has also took such a decision. The famous bike maker revealed that more than 66,000 motorcycles will be recalled at this point.
Harley Davidson claimed that Touring and CVO Touring motorcycles from the 2014 model might experience some brake problems. So, in some cases the anti-lock brake can suddenly lock up. This can lead to accidents and it has actually caused so far no less than 2 minor defects. Harley-Davidson claimed that these minor defects were discovered through warranty claims.
Naturally, Harley Davidson claim that they reacted as fast as possible after tracing the problem. During the recall all the bikes that have a problem will be repaired, naturally free of costs, by Harley-Davidson dealers. Reports reveal that dealers want to replace the brake lines, with no costs for owners. They also plan on attaching straps to keep them stable. In this recall there are included 2014 Touring and CVO Touring motorcycles that were built between July 2013 and May 2014. Owners of such vehicles will be notified to take their bikes in for the needed repairs.
This is not the first time when Harley Davidson deals with a recall of its bikes. Earlier this year, the famous company has been in a similar situation. The company recalled more than 18,000 bikes, including the Breakout and CO Breakout model lines. Apparently, the reason why they needed to recall these vehicles was actually linked to a fuel range indicator defect.
In 2013, Harley Davidson has been affected by another recall. This included over 29,000 motorcycles with hydraulic clutch system issues.
Well, Harley Davidson reps claimed that owners of the affected vehicles will be notified about this recall by the end of the month. It seems that the company is willing to invest a lot of efforts to solve this problem as fast as possible. The issue in these bikes can lead to very dangerous situations, so there is no wonder that the company is showing much interest in having it fixed.
