- 1,100 units recalled
- Faulty handlebar unit leading to separation from the left side
- Bikes manufactured between 6 December 2021 and 9 September 2022 recalled
Harley-Davidson has issued a recall for the Nightster range in the American market. Bikes manufactured between 6 December 2021 and 9 September 2022 have been recalled. The total number of units affected so far is 1,100.
The affected bikes are equipped with faulty handlebars. The issue primarily stemmed from one of the customer's bikes in the US. The left handle broke, and on later inspection, Harley-Davidson found a weld quality issue leading to separating the inner and outer sections.
As of now, the recall has only been announced in the US market. And the Indian arm of the Milwaukee bike maker is yet to announce if the bikes sold here are affected or not. Harley-Davidson launched the Nightster in India back in August at an asking price of Rs 14.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
It is powered by the Revolution Max 975T, 975cc, liquid-cooled, V-twin engine that develops 89bhp and 95Nm. The motor is mated to a six-speed gearbox and is the stress member of the chassis. The Nightster rides on USD front forks and dual rear shocks while the braking hardware comprises a single disc on both ends. The Nightster is available in three colours: Vivid Black, Gunship Gray and Redline Red.
