2012 Recalls BMW K1600GT & BMW K1600GTL
BMW Motorrad of North America has recalled 2,475 of its 2012 K 1600 GT and K 1600 GTL sport-touring motorcycles due to throttle issues.
BMW says in certain riding conditions, an incorrect throttle valve control signal may be received by the engine control unit, limiting the engine speed. As a result of the reduced engine speed, the engine could stall, increasing the risk of a crash, BMW says.
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will update the throttle control software, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin in December 2013.
