Rise in Harley-Davidson break failures results in investigation

Posted on July 27, 2016 3:01 pm under Automotive Defects

About 450 thousand Harley-Davidson motorcycles, model years 2008 to 2011, are under inspection from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) following a rise in complaints about the products’ anti-lock braking system.

NHTSA have accumulated 43 complaints, three reports of crashes, and two reports of injuries; one driver crashed into their garage door when the brakes in both the hand lever and the foot pedal did not work. NHTSA has stated that it is possible that some of these riders who were experiencing issues may not have changed the motorcycle’s brake fluid as recommended.
