- Issue affects 2021 single-channel ABS and rear drum brake Classic 350
- Nearly 26,300 motorcycles recalled
- Affected models manufactured between 1 September and 5 December, 2021
Royal Enfield has recalled the 2021 Classic 350 over a potential issue with the brake reaction bracket attached to the motorcycle swingarm. This particular issue affects the 2021 single-channel ABS and rear drum brake Classic 350 motorcycles.
The company said in a press statement that an exceptionally higher braking load applied on the rear brake pedal could lead to potential damage of the reaction bracket. This could further lead to unusual braking noise, and potential deterioration of braking efficiency in extreme conditions.
Royal Enfield added that the issue is isolated to the single-channel ABS, rear drum brake Classic 350 models that were manufactured between 1 September, 2021 and 5 December, 2021.
The Chennai-based manufacturer has decided to recall almost 26,300 single-channel ABS and rear-drum-brake-equipped Classic 350 motorcycles to reinforce the brake reaction bracket of the swingarm. Royal Enfield service teams and local dealerships will reach out to consumers whose motorcycle Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) number falls within the manufacturing period mentioned above.
