Indian is recalling all ABS-equipped Scout models (including the Scout Bobber and Scout Sixty) from model years 2017 and 2018 because air may have been left in the braking system during assembly. Air in the brake hydraulics may degrade brake performance, increasing the risk of a crash. The recall affects 4,185 units. Non-ABS models or Scouts from previous model years are not affected.
According to recall documentation released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Indian’s brake fluid fill process may not have met the company’s quality standards, potentially resulting in air getting trapped in the braking system.
