PhotoBMW of North America is recalling 37 model year 2017 BMW C650 GT and BMW C Evolution scooters.

The front wheel rims may not be marked with the required rim type and the DOT designation.

Thus the vehicles do not conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 120, "Wheels and rims-other than passenger cars."

If the rim is not marked with the rim size and the DOT designation, a tire of the incorrect size may be installed on this rim, affecting the handling of the scooter and increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace any rims that are not correctly marked, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 15, 2017.

Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
