Harley-Davidson has issued a recall of 1,85,272 of their motorcycles across the world. The American cruiser bike maker has confirmed that there is an issue with the saddlebags.
Saddlebags on Harley-Davidson motorcycles were found loose and an official inquiry confirmed this. The issue lies with a misaligned support rail, along with joint up stack difference and a spring wire.
15 Harley-Davidson models have been included in this recall due to loose saddlebags, which can be a cause of accident. The American manufacturer will not want any unwanted lawsuits, thus is calling for a recall.
Recall and replacement of faulty parts has commenced from 27th of July, 2015. New and improved parts will not be charged by Harley-Davidson to its owners and is a sign of good faith.
