In conditions when exceptionally higher braking load is applied on the rear brake pedal, it could lead to potential damage of the reaction bracket. This can in turn lead to unusual braking noise, and thus potential deterioration of braking efficiency in extreme conditions, leading to accidents.

The issue affects single-channel ABS, rear drum brake Classic 350 models that were manufactured between September 1 and December 5 this year. The affected units are being recalled to reinforce the brake reaction bracket of the swing arm for these units. “Issues like this can arise under specific, extreme riding conditions, and we are committed to resolving this at the soonest, with minimum inconvenience for our customers," the company said in a statement.
