BMW of North America is recalling 416 model year 2019 C400X scooters.

Water may collect in the throttle cable, which can freeze in cold temperatures, resulting in a stuck throttle.

If the throttle sticks open, there would be an increased risk of a crash.

What to do

BMW will notify owners and -- as an interim repair -- dealers will dry the throttle cable and affix a warning label instructing owners to not ride in temperatures near or below freezing free of charge.

Owners are advised to not wash their motorcycle near the throttle cable, and to avoid riding in rainy conditions.

The final remedy is still under development.

An interim letter is expected to be mailed April 6, 2020.

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