If you’ve traveled around Wisconsin, you’ve heard the unmistakable roar of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle engine. Amid several reports about brake system failures, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is launching an investigation.

From Biz Times Milwaukee:

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is investigating the potential for sudden brake failure in 430,000 Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

The investigation, started earlier this week, centers on motorcycles built between 2008 and 2011 with anti-lock brake systems.

The administration has received 43 complaints with riders reporting a sudden brake system failure occurring without warning. The investigation summary says riders experience no discernible braking effect when applying the front brake hand lever or rear brake foot pedal. The issue usually only occurs in either the front or back breaks, but one report alleged simultaneous loss of both.
