The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced a motorcycle recall that involves nearly 200 defective motorcycles. The recalled models include:
- Royal Enfield/ Bullet Electra E-5 (2009)
- Royal Enfield/ Bullet G-5 Classic (2009)
- Royal Enfield/ Bullet G5 Deluxe (2009)
- Royal Enfield/ Bullet G5 Military (2009)
Basis of the 2009 Motorcycle Recall
Issued by Classic Morotworks, the recall is based on a possible defect in the bikes that could result in potentially fatal motorcycle crashes. Apparently, due to lack of lubrication (a defect made by the manufacturers), the defective motorcycles have a high risk of rear wheel lock up.
Owners of the recalled motorcycles are encouraged to bring them back to the dealers for safety inspections. The dealers will inspect and replace the third gear and clutch shaft free of charge.
