Royal Enfield has recalled the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 in the American market. The recall has been issued to rectify an issue with the brakes that could lead to corrosion and in turn reduce braking power. Motorcycles manufactured between 2018 and 2020 are part of the recall.
The Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650 have been game-changers for Royal Enfield. These two motorcycles are those that turned things around for the brand and made even hardcore motorcyclists look at Royal Enfield with respect. Both motorcycles brought in a decent amount of sales and owners seem to be very happy with the motorcycles indeed.
Royal Enfield now seems to have encountered a small problem with the 650 twins and this seems to be specific to the American market. The problem in question seems to have its roots in the material used to make the brake calipers. According to the company, the brake calipers could get corroded by the salt from the road which would stop the brake pistons from retracting properly.
This will definitely lead to excessive wear of the brake pads and in extreme cases could also lead to a crash. We are unsure of the number of motorcycles affected by this problem, but Royal Enfield will contact the owners of the affected motorcycles through its dealers. The issue will then be rectified free of cost.
