Additional information:

Among the nineteen (19) recalls the NHTSA announced this month comes news of the following:

Logo - Indian Motorcycle CompanyIndian Motorcycle Company (“Indian”), a Springfield, Massachusetts establishment and a division of Polaris Industries, has recalled an estimated 52,745 model 2014-2019 Chief, Chieftain, Roadmaster and Springfield Motorcycles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 19V776000 reports the gear position switch contacts may oxidize, causing the gear position display to inaccurately show that the motorcycle is in neutral when it is actually in gear.

According to the NHTSA, if the transmission is not in neutral when the recalled Motorcycle is started, the Motorcycle may move unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash.

Indian will notify registered owners, and as an interim repair, dealers will clean the gear position switch. The switch will be replaced, once parts are available, currently expected to be in the first few months of 2020. These repairs will be performed free of charge. Interim letters notifying owners of the safety risk will be mailed November 19, 2019. Owners may contact Indian customer service at 1-877-204-3697 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). Indian’s designation for this recall is I-19-03.
