BMW has discovered a design element that violated the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard on 29,281 motorcycles, resulting in a recent recall issued through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The affected models, which are listed below, may have their rear reflectors partially blocked when equipped with the optional aluminum luggage cases.
BMW/R1200 GS ADVENTURE/2014-2017
The R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure have aluminum luggage case mounts that violate the safety standard as well. These models have both received stop-sale directives while a solution is “developed.”
Owners of affected models will be contacted, asked if they have the cases and if so will be directed to set up an appointment with an authorized BMW dealer. BMW customer service can be reached at 1-800-525-7417.
