These motorcycles are equipped with an emergency stop signal function that should keep the rear brake light on when braking. However, it has been found in some cases that the light flashes instead of staying on, making the bikes non-compliant with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, NHTSA said. A flashing light could be misinterpreted by some road users, increasing the risk of a crash.
BMW is notifying registered owners and dealers will fix the defective brake light, free of charge. This recall began on March 19, 2020.

BMW K 1200 / K 1300 Motorcycle Recall
BMW is recalling certain model 2004-2010 K1200 and K1300 motorcycles due to suspension/front wheel bearing issues. BMW says the following motorcycles are affected due to the recall:

BMW says the front bearings could be subject to corrosion, which could lead to reduced movement of the link lever. This could affect the handling of the motorcycle, causing the driver to lose control, which may result in a crash.
BMW R1250 Recall
BMW is recalling R1250GS and R1250RT motorcycles from model year 2020 for a potentially damaged pivot pin which may cause the connection between the final drive and swing arm to loosen, according to the NHTSA.
