BMW Motorrad Announces Another Recall — The C 650GT And C Evolution Scooters This Time

Written By:

It seems like BMW Motorrad is affected with the contagious 'recall' flu, as the company has announced its third recall in under two months. This time, BMW Motorrad is recalling the C 650GT and C Evolution scooters.

The German company recently recalled the R 1200 GS models owing to faulty front forks that could prove to be potentially dangerous. This was a global recall. The second recall affected seven models from the BMW Motorrad lineup, owing to a rear reflector issue.

Back to the scooters, the recall is due to the front wheels that are missing the DOT markings. The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard requires the rims to bear markings and DOT designations. These markings are important as they specify the right tyre size for the scooter.

As per documents submitted by BMW Motorrad, the tool used to manufacture the rims did not have the DOT markings. The issue was first noticed on July 11 during a quality check procedure at BMW; recall procedures were started three days later.

No accidents or incidents have been reported till date because of the missing marking, but BMW dealers will inspect the scooters and replace the rims with marked ones. The affected scooters were made between May and June this year, and 28 C 650GT scooters and 9 C Evolution electric scooters are under the recall program.
