It looks like the mothership is studying their new acquisition and found a couple of problems

Here are links to NHTSA's website.

And here are the write ups

Vehicle Make / Model: INDIAN / INDIAN Model Year(s): 2009-2011
Manufacturer: INDIAN MOTORCYCLE COMPANY Mfr's Report Date: JUN 24, 2011
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 11V343000 N/A
NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: EXTERIOR LIGHTING:HEADLIGHTS:SWITCH
Potential Number of Units Affected: 699
Summary:
POLARIS IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2009-2011 INDIAN MOTORCYCLES FOR THE BODY CONTROL MODULE (BCM) WHICH CAN CAUSE THE HEADLIGHT TO TURN OFF IN SOME CIRCUMSTANCES. IF THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH IS SLOWLY MOVED FROM ONE POSITION TO ANOTHER (HIGH BEAM TO LOW BEAM OR LOW BEAM TO HIGH BEAM), BOTH BEAMS MAY BE ON MOMENTARILY AND THE BCM INTERPRETS THIS AS AN OVERLOAD CONDITION.
Consequence:
THE BCM TURNS OFF THE HEADLIGHT UNTIL THE NEXT TIME THAT THE KEY IS TURNED ON. THE UNEXPECTED LOSS OF HEADLIGHT FUNCTION COULD IMPAIR A DRIVER'S VISIBILITY, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE BCM FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING AUGUST 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT POLARIS AT 1-651-408-7579.
Notes:
OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .
