Supreme Corporation (Supreme) is recalling certain 2014-2016 Classic American Trolley vehicles equipped with Ricon K-series or S-Series Ricon Wheelchair lifts.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 403, "Platform Lift Systems."
Supreme will notify owners, and Ricon dealers will replace the lift positioning input cam, free of charge. The recall began May 3, 2019. Owners may contact Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884.
