KTM North America is recalling 521 model year 2020 1290 Super Duke R motorcycles.

The wiring harness located in the rear of the motorcycle may be routed incorrectly, which could result in wiring damage and an electrical short-circuit.

An electrical short-circuit could cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

What to do

KTM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the rear wiring harness, and repair as necessary.

In addition, dealers will modify a piece of the bodywork called the "tail end lower part" to correct the routing of the wiring harness and add wiring protection and cable ties. Repairs will be performed free of charge.

The recall was expected to begin March 5, 2021.

KTM's number for this recall is TB2104.
