BMW Motorrad Recall
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects the following motorcycles from BMW’s 2020 Motorrad line-up, including:
- BMW F 750 GS
- BMW F 850 GS
- BMW F 850 GS Adventure
- BMW F 900 R
- BMW F 900 XR
- BMW R Nine T
- BMW R Nine T Pure
- BMW R Nine T Scrambler
- BMW S 1000 R
- BMW S 1000 RR
- BMW R 1250 GS
- BMW R 1250 GS Adventure
- BMW R 1250 R
- BMW R 1250 RS
- BMW K 1600 B
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:
K1200 GT / 2004-2010 K1200 R / 2004-2010 K1200 S / 2004-2010 K1300 GT / 2004-2010 K1300 R / 2004-2010 K1300 S / 2004-2010
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.
