KYMCO USA is recalling 476 model year 2016 K-Pipe motorcycles manufactured March 1, 2016, to May 25, 2016.
The gear shift pattern was assembled in a reverse sequence when compared to the standard setup. As such, these motorcycles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 123, "Motorcycle Controls and Displays."
If the motorcycle shifts opposite of other motorcycles, a rider may be confused and may select the wrong gear, adversely affecting control of the motorcycle and increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
The remedy for this recall campaign is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
Owners may contact KYMCO customer service at 1-888-235-3417.
