What’s the Problem?

According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects:

  • 2019 Indian Scout
  • 2019 Indian Scout Sixty
  • 2019 Indian Scout Bobber

Due to a problem in the manufacturing process of affected motorcycles, air may remain trapped within the brake system, possibly reducing brake performance, NHTSA said.

Reduced brake performance can increase the risk of a crash.

Indian is notifying owners and dealers will perform a brake fluid bleed of the front and rear ABS to evacuate the air, free of charge.

This recall began on August 19, 2020.

Gregg v. Indian Motorcycle Corp.

In May 2002, Mark Gregg was injured in a motorcycle accident that he claims was caused by a defect in his 2000 Indian Chief motorcycle.

At the time of the accident, Gregg was traveling east on Iowa Highway 9, in an unobstructed area that allows crosswinds and gusts on occasion. On the date of the accident, there was a 25 mph crosswind from the south, with gusts up to 34 mph.

Gregg accelerated and pulled out to pass a van. As he passed the front of the van, the motorcycle began to wobble, and Gregg lost control of the vehicle, causing it to veer off the highway. Gregg was ejected from the motorcycle and suffered injuries.

Gregg contends that the bolt connecting the left shock absorber to the swing arm was found broken, which caused the motorcycle to weave or wobble, resulting in the accident.

He further claims that a fatigue fracture, which was undetectable to him, started in the bolt sometime prior to the accident, and the fracture progressively worsened as the motorcycle was used, ultimately causing the bolt to break at the time of the accident.

Additionally, Gregg alleges Indian Motorcycle Corp. was aware of problems involving high-speed wobble or weave in its Indian Chief motorcycle, but Indian negligently failed to warn its customers and dealers about the problem or take steps to remedy the problem.
