Royal Enfield Recalls 2.37 Lakh Units Of Classic, Bullet & Meteor 350 To Replace Faulty Ignition Coil
The motorcycles with the faulty part were made between December 2020 and April 2021.
Royal Enfield has issued a recall for select units of the Meteor 350, Classic 350 and the Bullet 350 to inspect and change the defective ignition coil pack fitted to them.
A total of 2,36,966 units of the 3 motorcycles combined have been affected by the issue which could cause misfiring, reduction in performance and possibly an electric short circuit.
The bike manufacturer says the defect was discovered during routine internal testing. The defective part was traced to specific batches sourced from a supplier between December 2020 and April 2021, Enfield has revealed.
Although the brand has chosen to recall almost 2.37 lakh motorcycles of the Classic 350, Bullet 350 and Meteor 350 combined, it expects less than 10 percent of the recalled units to require replacement of the ignition coil.
The Royal Enfield Meteor 350 recall will cover units of the bike manufactured and sold between December 2020 and April 2021. The affected Classic and Bullet models were made between January and April 2021.
Service teams, and/or dealerships of Royal Enfield will reach out to customers who have purchased the affected models, says the brand.
Consumers can contact local Royal Enfield workshops, or dial 1800 210 007 to get to know if their bike’s Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) number falls within the manufacturing period mentioned above.
Enfield says it is committed to swiftly implement the recall action that is applicable to Meteor, Classic and Bullet motorcycles sold in India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Australia, New Zealand and Thailand.
