“However, there is a service campaign and owners are encouraged to contact their dealer if there are concerns,” a spokesman says.
Mark is not happy and has contacted the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission seeking a safety recall on the model.
“My main issue is that these bikes are not safe to ride and should all be recalled straight away to be checked for potential deadly faults,” Mark says.
RACQ Head of Technical and Safety Policy Steve Spalding says that if an owner finds a safety related problem with their motorcycle they should always alert the manufacturer and ask for it to be investigated.
“Not only is this a safeguard against continuing to ride a bike with a potential safety risk but it may also give an early warning to the manufacturer of a possible defect affecting a wider group or riders.”
