Australian owners of a number of Victory Motorcycles models are being asked to return their bike to a dealership to have a potentially serious engine fault addressed.

The recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and affects Victory Cross Country, Victory Cross Country Tour, Victory Cross Roads, Victory Magnum and Victory Hardball motorcycles.

All of the affected Heavy Cruiser and Touring Motorcycles were sold in Australia between the 30th of April 2010 and the 18th of October 2017.

The ACCC recall notice advises that if the engine misfires for a prolonged period of time, the exhaust could get hotter than normal and melt a retention clip that supports the rear brake line increasing the risk of brake line damage.

What are the hazards?

If the rear brake line becomes damaged, the rear brakes may fail and cause an accident.

What should consumers do?

Consumers are to contact their Authorised Victory Dealer to make arrangements for the repairs to be completed.

Further details are available on the Victory Motorcycles website, Victory dealers, or by calling customer service on 1300 721 360.
