Recalls – 23rd March 2018

The latest recalls ordered by motorcycle manufacturers for defective vehicles

All manufacturers must periodically recall some of their vehicles because of defects that emerged after the presentation.
In such cases, the procedure is to contact (usually by letter) all the owners of the vehicles concerned and ask them to visit a dealer for inspection. In particularly serious cases, when the vehicle changed ownership and the new owner and/or registered keeper is not mentioned in the the service network database , some manufacturers check the vehicle registration number in the DVLA database to find to the owner.

For this reason, if you did not receive a notification or you purchased a second-hand motorcycle, if you have any doubt that your vehicle could be subject to recall, you can contact the manufacturer’s customer service department to ask for information, providing the chassis number (VIN) of your bike.

NetBikers provides you with an updated list of the recalls made by the manufacturers. To find them, you can use the keyword #recalls in our internal search engine.
