Indian Motorcycle Company (Indian) is recalling certain 2019 Scout and Scout Bobber motorcycles equipped with Anti-Lock Brake Systems (ABS). After the manufacturing process, air may remain trapped within the brake system, possibly reducing brake performance leading to the announcement of this Scout and Bobber Brake Recall.
Indian will notify owners, and dealers will perform a brake fluid bleed of the front and rear ABS to evacuate the air, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a recall start date. Owners may contact Indian customer service at 1-877-204-3697. Indian’s number for this recall is 1-18-07. This recall is an expansion of NHTSA Recall number 19V-156.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov. Motorcycles with air trapped in the hydraulic brake fluid lines may experience longer braking periods, the loss of braking ability, or spongy and soft brake lever feel. Riders are encouraged to have the Scout and Bobber Brake recall performed as soon as possible and to avoid riding until the air has been removed from the system. Owners may contact Indian (Polaris) directly or contact management at CycleVIN in order to find out more information regarding this or any other motorcycle recall.
