Victory Motorcycle Recalls

Victory has recalled 2006-2011 Jackpot motorcycles, and 2004-2011 Kingpin motorcycles due to backrest-support defects. Polaris, owner of Victory, says 1,688 units are affected.

Polaris says the bikes affected are 2004-2011 Kingpin motorcycles, and the Jackpot manufactured from Jan. 1, 2004, through May 1, 2011, equipped with accessory seat Part # 2876641-01. Polaris says the backrest support can separate from the motorcycle, causing the passenger to fall.

Victory will notify owners, and dealers will replace the effected seats free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin around Aug. 30, 20111.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit safercar.gov.
