BMW Announces Recall of 2014 R 1200 RT



As of today, BMW Motorrad is notifying all owners of the current R 1200 RT, model year 2014, fitted with the Dynamic ESA option that there is a potential defect in the rear spring strut.

At the present time it cannot be ruled out that the piston rod of the rear spring strut in connection with the Dynamic ESA option could potentially break. For this reason, customers are requested not to ride their motorcycle until further notice.

This is a precautionary measure which BMW Motorrad is taking in the interests of customer safety based on a supplier report. To date there have been no injuries related to this issue. Approximately 8,000 vehicles are affected by this measure worldwide.

A technical campaign is in preparation to replace the part in question. BMW Motorrad regrets any inconvenience caused to customers affected by this precautionary measure.

BMW

Yes old newspeak.. And if you where one of the 55 people in the UK who had purchased one ,BMW would have contacted you.

That aside though..Modern BMWs are notoriously unreliable and prone to high end and very expensive mechanical break downs, they are not the  ultra reliable bikes people are lead to believe they are, although their very high end price would make you think so.
ABS modules, Shaft drives,air box warping, rough idle,throttle bodies sticking wide open, ESA,switch gear,radiator corrosion , ESA shocks leaking, cam chains jumping are all very common problems, just go on any Beemer forum and read about it.
This  recall doesn't surprise me in the least .

Well

It seems, to improve reliability, BMW are changing all the Chinese components on their bikes, and after recall, the original tyres and BMW decal will be all thats left. :eyebrows:
