Harley-Davidson have recalled 27,000 motorcycles from their 2016 line-up over an issue with the clutch not disengaging in certain situations.

The recall notice, published on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, states: "In the affected motorcycles, the clutch master cylinder may lose the ability to generate enough lift to disengage the clutch, especially if the motorcycle has been parked for an extended period of time.

"When the engine is running and the motorcycle is in gear, if the clutch cannot be fully disengaged, the motorcycle may move unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash."

TOP STORIES

The 14 models affected by the recall are the Electra Glide Ultra Classic, Electra Glide Ultra Classic Low, Ultra Limited Low, Ultra Limited, CVO Street Glide, Street Glide, Street Glide Special, Road Glide Special, Road Glide, Police Electra Glide, Road Glide Ultra, Fat Boy S, Softail Slim S, and CVO Softail Pro Street Breakout.
