Identifying features

What are the defects?

Due to a manufacturer defect the pivot struts that connect the rear suspension to the frame may break. This could cause the rear of the bike to drop onto the tyre, resulting in heavy deceleration of the rear wheel and instability for the rider.

What are the hazards?

Heavy deceleration and instability could cause the rider to lose control and potentially crash resulting in serious injury or death.

What should consumers do?

Consumers can contact their nearest BMW Motorrad dealer for the replacement of the pivot strut or contact BMW Group Customer Interaction Centre using or by phone on 1800 813 299.

Alternatively, they can contact BMW Motorrad Australia website:
