Harley-Davidson Recalls Street 750 Models In India Over Safety Issue

Harley-Davidson Motor Company has announced a recall of 3,698 units of its Street 750 model in order to fix an issue with the fuel pump module in the bikes.

The Milwaukee, Wis.-based two-wheeler manufacturer said that the fuel pump is equipped with a poor seal at the inlet, which negatively affects the fuel supply system when the rider accelerates, according to The Indian Express. The bikes could also experience interruptions in fuel delivery if its fuel capacity is under 3 liters or even before the low fuel indicator light comes on, which could lead to a sudden loss of power.

The recalled Street 750s include those built between Jan. 20, 2014 and June 24, 2015 in the U.S. and between Feb. 24, 2014 and July 15, 2015 in India at Harley-Davidson's factory in Kansas City and Bawal in India.

Harley-Davidson has yet to report an accident related to the issue, The Indian Express reported. The company has emailed owners of the recalled motorcycles in various countries, and it will have its dealerships replace the faulty parts free of charge.

The motorcycle maker also requested that owners not ride the Harley-Davidson Street 750 more than 160 kilometers with low fuel or without filling the fuel tank to the rim until they receive their new parts.

Harley-Davidson's recall follows after Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India's recent recall of 13,700 units of CBR 150R and CBR 250R models due to an issue with a starter relay switch assembly, ET Auto reported. The move covers bikes made between July 2014 and June 2015 in India.
