KTM Australia has recalled the current model 1290 Super Duke R over a wiring harness issue that could cause electrical failures.
The official notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says the failure could increase “the risk of an accident causing injury or death to the rider and other road users”.
“The rear section of the wiring harness may have been routed incorrectly during assembly. This may have damaged the wiring harness,” the notice says.
“Damage to the wiring harness may cause electrical failures. If the wiring harness is significantly damaged, this could also result in smoke.”
The VINs (Vehicle identification numbers) of the 157 motorcycles affected are listed at the end of this article.
Owners will be contacted by mail, to notify them of the recall. Consumers should contact an authorised KTM dealer to arrange an appointment for inspection of their motorcycle and to have replacement parts installed, free of charge.
