- 4,185 motorcycles recalled in the US
- Recall is related to an issue in braking system
- 2017 and 2018 manufactured bikes affected
Polaris has issued a recall for the Indian Scout and the Scout Bobber in the US. The recall covers motorcycles manufactured in 2017 and 2018.
The recall covers 4,185 examples of the Scout and Scout Bobber, and is related to an issue in the braking system of the models. The motorcycles under the recall may have air in the braking system as a result of a glitch in the assembly process. Presence of air in the braking system can significantly affect the bike's braking capabilities. Indian dealers have started contacting owners of the affected models to call them in. The dealers will bleed the brake lines and get rid of air from the system, free of charge.
Both the Indian Scout and Scout Bobber are sold in India, and are two of the most popular models in the company's portfolio. As all Indian bikes are imported as completely built units from the US, there is a chance that a few motorcycles sold here are also affected by this problem. We are awaiting word from Indian on whether they will be issuing a recall in the country anytime soon.
