Thunder Stroke 111 engine manufactured between April 15, 2013, to June 16, 2015, are in question. Indian Motorcycle uses this engine in their Roadmaster, Chieftain, Vintage, Dark Horse, Chief Classic, and Chieftain Dark Horse.
ECU needs to be updated and fixed by Indian Motorcycles to rectify the ignition issue. The American-based cruiser bike manufacturer will be taking care of repairs free of cost. Affected customers will have to take their motorcycles to the closest dealership to rectify the issue.
