Indian Motorcycle Company is recalling 7,611 model year 2015-2016 Chief Classic, Chief Vintage, Chieftain, Roadmaster, and 2016 Dark Horse motorcycles manufactured January 2, 2015, to October 23, 2015.
Due to a problem with the rear brake master cylinder, the motorcycles may have a reduction in, or a complete loss of, rear brake power.
A full or partial loss of rear braking power may lengthen the distance needed to slow or stop the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Indian will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear brake master cylinder piston assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 13, 2015.
Owners may contact Indian customer service at 1-877-204-3697. Indian's number for this recall is I-14-04.
