The official recall notice, issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says the electrical defect “may cause unexpected loss of forward lighting, including high and low beam headlights and fog lights”.
“If this occurs, the High Beam indicator will flash on the gauge cluster,” it says.
“If the motorcycle lighting malfunctions while in operation, it may reduce visibility and increase the risk of an accident or injury to the rider or other road users.”
Owners are urged to “avoid riding at night or in low light conditions until their motorcycle has been repaired”.
That might not be an issue given the current ever-tightening restrictions on riding during the pandemic.
Riders are asked to contact their authorised Indian Motorcycle dealer to schedule an appointment to have the failure fixed, free of charge.
“Do not attempt repairs yourself,” the notice warns.
“Repairs must be done only by an authorised Indian Motorcycle dealer.”
For any questions or concerns, please contact the Indian Motorcycle Customer Service Department on 03 9394 5610 between 8.30am and 4.30pm EST Monday to Friday, excluding Victorian public holidays.
