KTM Australia continues to lead the list of recalled motorcycles with the latest being a recall of 2021 450SX-F MX competition motorcycles for an issue that could lock the engine.
The recall only affects five motorcycles in Australia.
It brings the number of recalls by KTM Australia to 10 so far this which is the most of any importer. However, it should be noted they also import GasGas and Husqvarna which also account for some of the recalls.
“The shift drum may break during riding,” the notice says.
“If the shift drum breaks, it may cause damage to the transmission or engine.
“It may also block or lock the engine, which can cause engine power loss and affect vehicle handling and acceleration, increasing the risk of an accident resulting in injury or death to the rider, passengers and/or bystanders.”
Consumers will be contacted by KTM Australia and their authorised dealers. Authorised dealers will replace the shift drum, free of charge.
