Harley Davidson has decided to recall 66,421 of its Touring and CVO Touring motorcycles. The models belong to 2014 production season as the bikes that have ABS built in between July 1, 2013 and May 7, 2014 have faulty brake lines that can cause the front tyre to lock-up without any warning.
Harley has given the logic of the brake line getting pinched between the frame and the fuel tank causing the brake fluid's pressure to increase resulting in sudden braking of the front wheel.
5 crashes have been reported in the recent times which led Harley Davidson to acknowledge the problem. The company will contact the owners by the month's end and replace the brake lines for free and strap them to hold them in place.
