Harley-Davidson India has issued a silent recall for all Street 750 models manufactured from 2016 onwards. The Milwaukee-based manufacturer has cited faulty brake callipers as the reason behind the latest recall. Globally, nearly 44,000 units of the Street series (both 750 and 500) have been affected by this issue and the manufacturer is working on rectifying it as soon as possible.

In India, the Street 750 is the gateway into the Harley family. But the manufacturer has faced severe backlash in the past for issues related to the brakes. Back in 2016, owners complained of severe brake fade and the callipers wearing off too soon, which resulted in a couple of accidents. This time around the issue is not that severe, but nevertheless Harley does not want to take any chances. The company has said that the brakes could drag due to brake calliper piston bores that are prone to corrode quickly. Increased drag could affect the bike’s stability and increase the risk of a crash, it added. The company has contacted owners of Street 750s that were manufactured from 2016 onwards.
While we did speak to officials from Harley-Davidson India, they do not have an exact figure of how many Street 750s have been affected by the latest recall. However, they have us that the check-up process is underway and if any issues are found, the faulty brake calliper units will be replaced free of charge. This isn’t the first time Harley-Davidson has recalled the Street 750. Back in 2015, the manufacturer recalled the entry-level cruiser for a faulty seal in the fuel pump.
