BMW recalls 122,000 motorcycles worldwide
Brake fluid loss problem prompts mass recall over safety fears
BMW IS TO recall 122,000 motorcycles worldwide due to the discovery of a leak in the braking system on the K1200GT tourer, the company has announced.
Up to 6,000 machines could be affected from the firm's range produced between August 2006-May 2009.
A BMW spokesman told Visordown: "I can confirm there's a worldwide recall regarding stress fractures in part of the braking system. It may affect up to 6,000 machines in the UK. The problem's a gradual degradation of a brake hose coupling, which could lead to a minor leak of brake fluid, not an instantaneous loss."
BMW was keen to point out "no accidents" had been caused by the issue.
"Any owners with concerns should contact their authorised dealer. They should also check their bike's front and rear brake fluid reservoirs before riding.
"An official statement will be released shortly," said BMW.
