I was just talking last night to my Two Enthusiasts Podcast co-host Quentin Wilson about the recent recall for BMW light reflectors, saying that I bet that we will see another recall from BMW Motorrad – the German brand likely now under the microscope after its service bulletin turned massive recall on the GS front-end.

It seems that I didn’t have to wait long to be correct with the assumption, as BMW Motorrad has another recall with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this one affecting the 2014-2017 BMW R1200RT Police model

Relating to the brake lights on the machine, which may not illuminate when the motorcycle is in a “special operations” mode (read: pulling your ass over), BMW North America is recalling a aptly figured 911 units for the defect.

Accordingly, BMW will notify affected R1200RT Police model owners, and BMW dealers will update the bike’s software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 25, 2017. Concerned owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.

As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and
