BMW Motorrad Australia Nick Raman confirms the delay in fulfilling orders.
“BMW AG is in the final stages of testing the repair solution,” he says.
“Based on the successful conclusion of the tests and approval of the repair solution, parts will be produced and distributed to markets.
“Anticipated timing for the first parts to be available in Australia is late December 2019 to early January, 2020.”
The recall notice was over oil leaks from cracks in the rubber hose of the BMW S 1000 RR’s oil cooler.
The official notice from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says the oil leak may spray on to the rear wheel of the motorcycle “increasing the risk of an accident or serious injury to the rider and other road users”.
Owners should contact an authorised BMW Motorrad dealer, or call the BMW Group Australia Customer Interaction Centre on freecall 1800 813 299 to arrange for inspection and replacement of the oil cooler, where required.
The recall on oil leaks affects 77 bikes, plus the delivery of an unknown number of bikes on order.
