BMW automobile trading company in China have recalled 478 K1600 and K1600 GT motorcycles due to faulty shock absorbers.

Federal Road Safety Corps spokesman Bisi Kazeem disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday.

“FRSC wishes to draw the attention of the motoring public, particularly those who are presently using K1600 and K1600 GT Motorcycles with production dates of 28 June 2017 to 19 September 2018,” Mr Kazeem said. “This is because the manufacturers, BMW automobile trading company, have recalled the affected motorcycles due to faulty shock absorbers.”

According to the report contained in a memo forwarded by the office of the secretary to the government of the federation, the BMW (China) Automobile Trading Company Limited revealed that the withdrawal of the motorbikes commenced on September 7.

“The withdrawal is specifically premised on the fact that the hinged tie rods at the rear shock absorber cannot reach the designed strength and may break over time, posing a safety hazard,” added the FRSC official.

The FRSC cautioned the public, particularly dealers and riders of these specific motorbikes, not to sell them and not to ride them on Nigerian roads.
