Recalls January 2019: Honda, Yamaha, KTM e Husqvarna (4-1-2019)

All manufacturers must periodically recall some of their vehicles for defects discovered after marketing.
In these cases, the procedure requires them to contact (usually by letter) all the owners of the vehicles concerned, inviting them to go to a dealer for a check. In particularly serious cases, when the vehicle has changed ownership and the details of the new owner do not even appear in the database of the service network, some houses make searches on the plates of the vehicles for which they can not trace the owner. But it depends on the seriousness of the risk: such long and expensive procedures are put in place for potentially very risky problems, not for small defects for which the owner of the vehicle may voluntarily turn to the official service network.
For this reason, whoever does not receive the mail or has purchased a second-hand motorcycle, if he has the doubt that his vehicle may be subject to recall, can contact the customer relations office of the manufacturer to ask for information, providing the chassis number of the motorcycle owned.

NetBikers provides you with an updated list of calls made by manufacturers and reported through the appropriate site managed by the European Commission (Rapex). At a national level, the recall campaigns are also listed by the Government website at this address https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-recalls-and-faults .
