KTM North America is recalling 1,506 model year 2018-2020 Husqvarna Motorcycle 701 Vitpilen and model year 2019-2020 701 Svartpilen motorcycles.

The gear teeth on the license plate holder and swingarm may be positioned incorrectly, possibly resulting in a loose rear axle nut, causing the license plate holder to contact the rear wheel.

License plate bracket interference with the rear wheel can increase the risk of a crash or injury.

What to do

Dealers will inspect and realign the gear teeth on the license plate holder and swingarm, and inspect the tightness of the rear wheel axle collar free of charge.

Owners may contact KTM customer service at (888) 985-6090. KTM's number for this recall is HTB2106.
