Indian Motorcycle Company is recalling 3,147 model year 2019 Chieftain motorcycles.
The tail lights may be too bright, exceeding the maximum light output allowed.
As a result, other drivers may have difficulties discerning the brake light from the tail light, and may be unaware that the motorcycle is braking, thereby increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Indian will notify owners, and dealers will update the engine control module software to correct the rear tail light's intensity free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin in September 2019.
Owners may contact Indian customer service at (877) 204-3697. Indian's number for this recall is I-19-04.
