The more recent Harley-Davidson motorcycles, the Sportster S, Pan America 1250 and the Pan America 1250 Special have been recalled over a faulty instrument cluster issue overseas.

The recently launched Harley-Davidson Sportster S has been recalled over a faulty instrument cluster issue. Harley-Davidson, in an official announcement, has stated that the instrument cluster stops showing the neutral indication and does not display speed if the environment temperature drops below 0-degree celsius. The American motorcycle maker confirms that this problem has been only encountered in a cold-start situation; the instrument cluster works absolutely fine otherwise.

However, the speedometer and other units have been deemed faulty, therefore Harley-Davidson has issued a recall for the newly Pan-America 1250 and the Pan-America 1250 Special alongside the Sportster S. A total of 3,917 motorcycles are equipped with the same panel, hence, the company will replace the issued piece for free of charge.
