Harley-Davidson is recalling certain 2019-2020 FLHTCUTG and FLRT Trike motorcycles. The issue stems from a glitch with the bike’s traction control system and a faulty rear-wheel speed sensor. The problem could cause unintended activation of one of the rear wheel’s brakes. This could lead to an unexpected change in the vehicle’s direction and increase the risk of a crash.
A total of 12,624 trike motorcycles are affected by this recall as shown in the below chart:
