NEWS: Harley-Davidson Recalls 2015 Street 500 & 750 Motorcycles
Harley-Davidson Motor Company is recalling certain model year 2015 XG500 (Street 500) motorcycles manufactured from January 28, 2014 to March 9, 2015, and 2015 XG750 (Street 750) motorcycles manufactured from May 12, 2014 to March 9, 2015. The affected motorcycles may have been manufactured without a rear reflector assembly. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”
If the motorcycle is missing the rear reflector it can reduce the vehicle’s visibility to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.
Harley-Davidson will notify owners, and dealers will install a rear reflector assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2015. Owners may contact Harley-Davidson customer service at 1-800-258-2464. Harley-Davidson’s number for this recall is 0620.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go tosafercar.gov.
