The Indian Scout series has an issue in its Anti-lock Brake System.
Indian Motorcycle Company has recalled 4,185 units the Scout, Scout Bobber and Scout Sixty motorcycles – all produced between 2017 and 2018. Currently, the recall is taking place only in the US.
The reported problem with these bikes is with their respective Anti-Lock Brake Systems (ABS), which may still have air inside after the assembly process. This can potentially make the brakes weaker, resulting in a risk of crash.
Indian Motorcycle is expected to start notifying its American customers about this issue from this month itself. The company's dealers will fix this issue by bleeding the front and rear anti-lock brake system, at no cost.
It is not yet known if this issue has caused any accidents or injury. All three of these affected Indian models are also sold in India. Since these bikes are imported to India via the CBU route, they might have a similar problem. However, we can't confirm anything until Indian Motorcycle releases an official statement regarding the same.
