Royal Enfield recalled 2,36,966 units of the Meteor 350, the Bullet and the Classic that were sold in India, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Australia & New Zealand and Malaysia.
Royal Enfield has said that it has discovered a defect in the ignition coil that can cause misfiring, reduced vehicle performance and in rare cases, an electric short circuit. The defect was discovered during routine internal testing and the issue has been clearly identified and isolated to specific batches of material sourced from the company’s external supplier between December 2020 and April 2021.
The impacted bikes involve the Meteor 350 manufactured and sold between December 2020 and April 2021, and the Classic and the Bullet manufactured and sold between January and April 2021.
These motorcycles will undergo inspection and replacement of the said defective part, if required. Royal Enfield estimates that less than 10 percent of these motorcycles will require replacement of the part.
