Motorcycle Recall - Indian Recall

By Walter F. Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  18V055000
Component:  Electrical System
Manufacturer:  Indian Motorcycle Company
Recall Date: 01/16/2018
Potential Number of Units Affected: 7,392
Defect Summary:
Indian Motorcycle Company (Indian) is recalling certain 2015-2017 Roadmaster motorcycles. Water may enter the trunk wiring harness, potentially causing the brake light to remain illuminated even when the brakes are not applied.
Consequence Summary:
If the brake light remains illuminated when the brakes are not applied, a vehicle behind the motorcycle may not know when the motorcycle is actually slowing, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Indian will notify owners, and dealers will replace the trunk wiring harness with an updated harness that contains sealing plugs in the connectors, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 30, 2018. Owners may contact Indian customer service at 1-877-204-3697. Indian's number for this recall is I-18-01.
