INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - United States motorcycle manufacturer, Harley-Davidson, Reject (voluntary recall) more than 251 thousand units of motorcycles from around the world. This is done because of the problem of brakes on the vehicle.

Milwaukee Sentinel, as quoted from Xinhua, Sunday (11/2/2018) mentioned, Harley-Davidson cost US $ 29.4 million for 175 thousand units of motorcycles sold in the United States.

The recall includes Harley-Davidson model CVO Touring and VSRC in 2008 to 2011 which features anti-lock brakes. The feature is potentially not working during braking due to corrosion of its components.

In July 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) began investigating the brake problem after receiving 43 complaints, including a report of three accidents and two injured.

In addition, this brake problem occurs because some owners do not replace brake fluid regularly every two years. As a result, brake fluid is contaminated by moisture and causes corrosion of the actuator valve-lock brake system.
