The recall has been issued in regard to a defective ignition coil in Royal Enfield Meteor, Bullet, and Classic 350. Over 2.3 lakh units of Royal Enfield motorcycles will be inspected in seven countries
Royal Enfield has issued a recall for 2,36,966 units sold of Bullet, Classic 350, and Meteor. Along with the Indian market, the recall has been announced in Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, and Malaysia.
In an internal routine checkup, Royal Enfiled has identified a flawed ignition coil that causes misfires, reduced performance, and in some cases, a short circuit. The company says that the Meteor manufactured between December 2020 and April 2021, and the Bullet and Classic 350 manufactured between January and April 2021 have been equipped with the faulty ignition coil.
Royal Enfield claims that less than 10 per cent of the total motorcycles will require a replacement, although, all the affected units will undergo an inspection and a replacement of the ignition coil if required. The job will be executed at authorised Royal Enfield service centers by the respective technicians. Authorised dealerships will reach out to customers whose motorcycles come under the production period mentioned earlier in the story.
Also, customers can proactively connect with their local authorised dealership or call on 1800 210 007 and submit their VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) to check if their motorcycle falls under this recall.
