Chennai-headquartered motorcycle company Royal Enfield has recalled 26,300 Classic 350s model year 2021 a possible brake issue.
The company’s technical team has discovered a potential issue in one of the parts – the brake reaction bracket attached to the motorcycle swing arm – used specifically on the 2021 single-channel ABS and rear drum brake Classic 350 motorcycles.
As per the OEM under specific riding conditions, it was discovered that exceptionally higher braking load applied on the rear brake pedal could lead to potential damage of the reaction bracket, which could further lead to unusual braking noise, and potential deterioration of braking efficiency in extreme conditions.
The issue has been clearly isolated to the single-channel ABS, rear drum brake Classic 350 models, manufactured between September 1 and December 5. As a precautionary measure, Royal Enfield has recalled close to 26,300 single-channel ABS and rear-drum-brake enabled Classic 350 models and reinforce the brake reaction bracket of the swing arm for all units.
The company and its local dealerships will reach out to consumers whose motorcycle Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) number falls within the manufacturing period mentioned above. Consumers can also reach out to their local Royal Enfield Workshops, or call Royal Enfield on 1800 210 007 to verify.
