Royal Enfield has issued a recall for 236,966 motorcycles specific to the Classic, Bullet and Meteor models. The Chennai-based bike maker says it has discovered a defect in the ignition coil that can cause misfiring, reduced vehicle performance and in rare cases, an electric short circuit.

The company says, “The defect was discovered during routine internal testing and the issue has been clearly identified and isolated to specific batches of material sourced from our external supplier between December 2020 and April 2021.”
The impacted bikes involve Meteor motorcycles manufactured and sold between December 2020 and April 2021, and the Classic and Bullet manufactured and sold between January and April 2021. These motorcycles will undergo inspection and replacement of the said defective part, if required. Royal Enfield estimates that less than 10% of these motorcycles will require replacement of the part.

This proactive recall action will be applicable to Meteor, Classic and Bullet model motorcycles sold in India, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Australia & New Zealand and Malaysia.

Royal Enfield service teams, and/or local dealerships will reach out to consumers whose motorcycle Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) number falls within the manufacturing period mentioned above. Consumers can also proactively reach out to their local Royal Enfield Workshops, or call Royal Enfield on 1800 210 007 to verify
