BMW Motorrad of North America has recalled 1,398 of its 2013-2016 G 650 GS motorcycles due to engine control unit (ECU) issues.

BMW says that certain model G 650 GS motorcycles built from March 8, 2013, through Oct. 12, 2015, and 2013-2015 BMW G 650 GS Sertao motorcycles manufactured March 8, 2013, to May 23, 2014, may stall during operation due to an ECU software issue.

If the engine stalls, it can increase the risk of a crash.

BMW says it will notify owners, and dealers will update the ECU software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 18, 2016. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
