MEDINA, Minn. – Indian Motorcycle Company has issued a recall on 2019 Scout and Scout Bobber motorcycles due to a potential brake problem.   

According to the documents published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an estimated four percent of the 2,742 motorcycles targeted in this recall could present the issue.   

The recall details how the brake fluid on some of the units involved might not have been filled in a way that meets the manufacturer’s quality standards. In some cases, air might have infiltrated the brake system and remain in the conduct. Should that be the case, Indian explains that the presence of air will affect the braking efficiency of ABS-equipped units.   

In the Defect Notice, Indian points out that this is a “follow up” to a recall initiated in 2019 for the same issue.
