BMW Motorrad are recalling their ‘Sport’ helmet because it does not fully meet the approval test requirements according to the European standard UNECE R 22.05.
The helmets in question can be identified by the eight-digit number to be found on the label on the chin strap. Only helmets with the ID 059241/P are affected. There is no safety risk to users of the helmet.
Owners are asked to hand their helmet in at an authorised BMW Motorrad dealership, and regardless of the age of the helmet, the relevant model can be exchanged for another BMW Motorrad helmet or another BMW Motorrad product of equal value. Alternatively, owners can request a BMW Motorrad Centre voucher/credit note, or receive a full refund if they provide a copy of their original receipt.
No other BMW Motorrad helmets are affected.
