Suzuki Australia has recalled 360 learner-approved GSX250R motorcycles over a brake light failure that “may increase the risk of an accident”.
The official recall notice issued by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says that “due to the improper materials used in the production of the brake light switch, the switch may corrode if exposed to water”.
“If the brake light switch corrodes and continues to be used, it may short circuit and no longer activate,” the notice says.
“The inactive brake light may increase the risk of an accident, resulting in injury to the rider.”
Owners of the affected GSX250R models will be contacted by direct mail. They will be asked to contact their nearest authorised Suzuki dealer to arrange for an inspection and free repair of the vehicle.
In case the bike has since changed hands, we have published this notice as a public service.
