2015 KTM Enduro R

KTM has recalled its 2015 690 Enduro R motorcycles due to rear-brake issues. The Austrian-based manufacturer says 409 Enduro Rs built from Nov. 1, 2014, to Feb. 28 2015, are possibly affected.

KTM says the rear brake line from the ABS pressure modulator to the foot brake cylinder may have been damaged during the assembly process and/or be subject to subsequent damage caused by contact with the spring clamp of the crank case ventilation hose.

A damaged brake line may cause a loss of rear braking, increasing the risk of a crash, KTM says.

KTM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the positioning of the crank case ventilation hose clamp, correcting it as necessary. Any damaged brake line will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge.

KTM has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact KTM customer service at 1-888-985-6090. Note: Owners are advised to not ride their motorcycle until the recall has been remedied.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit SaferCar.gov.
