Munich.As of today, BMW Motorrad is notifying all
owners of the current R 1200 RT, model year 2014, fitted with the
Dynamic ESA option that there is a potential defect in the rear spring
strut. At the present time it cannot be ruled out that the piston rod
of the rear spring strut in connection with the Dynamic ESA option
could potentially break. For this reason, customers are requested not
to ride their motorcycle until further notice. This is a precautionary
measure which BMW Motorrad is taking in the interests of customer
safety based on a supplier report. To date there have been no injuries
related to this issue. Approximately 8,000 vehicles are affected by
this measure worldwide.
A technical campaign is in preparation to replace the part in
question. BMW Motorrad regrets any inconvenience caused to customers
affected by this precautionary measure.
