Royal Enfield has issued a recall of over 26,000 units of the 2021 Classic 350. The firm says, that the motorcycles are affected by a fault bracket in the braking system, which could affect the overall braking performance.
A week ago, Royal Enfield reported that the Classic 350 has breached the one lakh production mark. However, now the company states that the very same model has issues with its braking system.
If extremely high braking pressure is applied on the rear-brake pedal, it could wear out the reaction bracket, which is mounted on the swingarm. Eventually, this could affect the overall braking performance and can lead to braking noise.
Royal Enfield has also made it very clear that all the one lakh motorcycles do not suffer from this issue. The batch of bikes produced between 1 September 2021 and 5 December 2021 are the ones that are affected. The braking issue is only with the Royal Enfield Classic 350 single-channel ABS version, which features a drum brake arrangement at the rear.
Royal Enfield has further added that a total of 26,300 units are equipped with the faulty brake reaction bracket, which will be replaced with a more robust bracket by the company free of charge.
Royal Enfield’s service team will reach out to the respective owners with affected motorcycles. Also, the customers can themselves approach the authorised dealerships and find out if their motorcycle belongs to the affected batch by cross-referencing the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) numbers of their motorcycles.
