Harley-Davidson has issued a recall for 27,232 cruisers. The American-based two-wheeler manufacturer believes there could be a fault in the clutch assembly. It is the third time that Harley-Davidson will be recalling its cruisers over an issue related to the clutch.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or NHTSA has expressed that there is an issue with the clutch master cylinder. Harley-Davidson models with faulty parts would experience difficulty in disengaging of the clutch. It is unclear if the faulty clutch has caused any fatalities.
Here are the 2016 models affected by the recall - Fat Boy Special, Electra Glide Ultra Classic, Electra Glide Ultra Classic Low, Road Glide, Road Glide Special, Road Glide Ultra, Ultra Limited, Ultra Limited Low, Street Glide, CVO Street Glide, Street Glide Special, Police Electra Glide, Softail Slim S, and CVO Softail Pro Street Breakout.
Currently, Harley-Davidson has issued the recall for 27,232 cruisers in the United States. It is unclear if the India-spec models face a similar issue with the clutch. We expect Harley-Davidson to make an announcement soon if models in India are affected as well.
Affected models will be rectified free of cost by Harley-Davidson. Owners will be contacted personally to be notified of the recall of the cruisers. Thorough checkup of the clutch master cylinder will be carried out prior to any repair work that would need to be carried out.
