Harley-Davidson Recalls 238,380 Motorcycles for Clutch Problem

Harley-Davidson is issuing a recall for a clutch problem. It’s the fourth recall for a clutch-related issue in five years. Tuesday, the company recalled 238,380 motorcycles worldwide.

The safety recall is voluntary, and it includes some 2017 Softails and all model-year 2017 and 2018 Touring, CVO Touring, and Trike models.

The recall is going to cost Harley-Davidson around $35 million in this fiscal quarter.

Chief Financial Officer at Harley-Davidson, John Olin, said the safety of the riders is their number one priority and that the company is committed to resolving this issue.

Harley recalled over 27,000 bikes in 2016 for clutch master cylinder problem.  Just a year earlier, the Milwaukee company recalled nearly 46,000 motorcycles after 27 crashes and four minor injuries associated with a clutch problem happened.

In 2013, Harley recalled around 25,000 bikes for a clutch problem.
