What's the Problem?
This recall affects Akoury Boss67 motorcycle helmets, part number BFR CO (sizes S, M, L, XL, and XXL), according to a Recall Notice by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The recalled motorcycle helmets may lack proper impact protection, and fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 218, "Motorcycle Helmets," NHTSA said. A helmet that does not provide adequate protection can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
If you purchased a motorcycle helmet that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact your Akoury dealer for information about how to receive a free replacement.
