KTM Australia has recalled selected models of the 1290 Super Duke GT motorcycle over faulty fuel hoses which could leak.
The VIN numbers of those Super Duke GTs affected are listed at the end of this article. They were available for sale from May 18, 2016 to February 17, 2017.
The voluntary recall notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says that if a fuel leak should occur, it could cause damage or “may lead to a fire”.
Super Duke GT owners will be contacted by direct mail and asked to contact their nearest authorised KTM dealer to arrange an inspection and free repair of their motorcycle.
However, second or subsequent owners who may not be known to KTM Australia will not receive a letter.
That’s why Motorbike Writer publishes all road motorcycle recall notices.
The last KTM recall was in November for a melting brake line affecting 2013 to 2016 KTM 1190 Adventure, 1190 Adventure R and 1290 Super Adventure motorcycles.
Last year was not good for KTM with five recalls, the same as Kawasaki and second only to Honda with six.
