Harley recalls new Revolution models

Issue only effects bikes in zero temps

Harley-Davidson Australia has recalled its new Revolution-engined Pan America adventure bike and Sportster S over an issue that only affects the bikes in zero temperatures.

Interestingly, Harley’s new additions to their range sold 515 bikes in the past year, 515 of which were the Pan America Special.

The sales results are revealed in the official recall notice, not in the official FCAI sales figures which these days don’t reveal such data. 

It’s a good indication that the new bikes have been well received, especially the company’s first adventure bike.

Anyway, back to the recall.

The issues is related to a software fault, according to the official recall notice.

It says that if the temperature of the instrument cluster is below 0 degrees Celsius, “the speedometer and neutral indicator may not display as intended” and an error warning message may display.

If the speedometer or neutral indicator is not displayed as intended the rider will be unable to correctly determine the operating speed,” the notice says. 

“This may increase the risk of an accident, causing injury or death to the rider, passenger or other road users.”

Owners should contact their nearest Harley-Davidson dealer “immediately” to schedule an appointment to have the software updated in the instrument cluster module at no charge.

Surely there’s no rush, though, as temperatures are not likely to plummet that much in the next few months.

The recall is the first for Harley this year after last year having only two recalls in a year where there were official 46 recalls, the highest number monitored since 2009 and significantly more than the previous high of 37 in 2018.

Here are the VINs (Vehicle identification number) of the affected bikes:

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS ON RECALLS

Even though manufacturers and importers usually contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.
