BMW withdraws its motorcycles

BMW repairs its failures

In brief: BMW Company has already received several complaints to the failures of motorcycles’ brake systems.

German automobile concern Bayerische Motoren Werke AG (BMW) withdraws about 122 000 motorcycles all over the world. It is connected with possible problems in brake system due to leaking brake fluid. These are strictly preventive measures, because, fortunately, there have been no serious incidents yet.

However, BMW Company has already received several complaints to the failures of motorcycles’ brake systems. Motorcycles, which are to be withdrawn, were produced in a period between August, 2006, and May, 2009. These are: R 1200 GS Adventure, R 1200 ST, R 1200 RT, R 1200 R, R 1200 GS and K 1200 GT. Some of them have already been checked and all failures have been repaired. The problem, however, remains the same; therefore BMW is going to check about 1/3 of its motorcycles, produced from 2006 to 2009. BMW dealers send to the owners of defective motorcycles official letters with proposition of solving their problems.
