KTM North America is recalling 1,238 model year 2015-2016 1290 Super Adventure motorcycles manufactured December 1, 2014, to December 11, 2015.
The motorcycles have a rear shock absorber that may leak oil from the rebound damping plug, resulting in a loss of shock function.
Loss of function of the rear shock may affect the handling of the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
KTM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the rebound damping plug for leaking, replace the shock absorber, as necessary, and install a new version of the suspension control unit software free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
Owners may contact KTM customer service at 1-888-985-6090. KTM's number for this recall is TB1611.
