Indian Scout Recall Due to Rear Brake Issues

Indian Scout Recall Due to Rear Brake IssuesIndian Motorcycle has recalled 806 of its 2015 Scout, the smallest motorcycle currently available in the Polaris-owned brand’s lineup.

Indian reports that the affected models may suffer a reduction – or complete loss – in rear-brake power due to problems with the rear-brake master cylinder.

Indian says a full or partial loss of rear braking power may lengthen the distance needed to slow or stop the 1133cc-powered Scout, increasing the risk of a crash.

Indian says the the following model numbers are affected – N15MSA00AA, N15MSA00AH, N15MSA00AR, N15MSA00AS, N15MSA00BA, N15MSA00BH, N15MSA00BS, N15MSA00CA, and N15MSA00CS. These Indian Scouts were manufactured May 12, 2014, to February 13, 2015.

Indian will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the rear brake master cylinder, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in March 2015. Owners may contact the Indian Motorcycle Consumer Service Department at 1-877-204-3697. Indian’s number for this recall is I-15-01 A/B.

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.
