Indian Motorcycle Company is recalling 616 model year 2020 Challenger motorcycles.

The engine output shaft bearing may not have been sufficiently lubricated during assembly, possibly resulting in bearing failure at very low mileage.

Engine output shaft bearing failure could cause a sudden loss of power, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Indian will notify owners, and dealers will lubricate the output shaft bearings on motorcycles with less than 50 miles on the odometer free of charge.

Owners with an odometer reading of less than 50 miles should not operate their motorcycle until it is repaired.

Motorcycles with greater than 50 miles will not require a repair, and can either be inspected by a dealer, or the owner can self-report the odometer reading directly to Indian.

The recall is expected to begin in April 2020.

Owners may contact Indian customer service at (877) 204-3697. Indian's number for this recall is I-20-02.
