KTM North America, Inc. (KTM) is recalling certain 2020 1290 Super Duke R motorcycles. The wiring harness located in the rear of the motorcycle may be routed incorrectly, which could result in wiring damage and an electrical short-circuit.
KTM will notify Super Duke owners, and dealers will inspect the rear wiring harness, and repair as necessary. In addition, dealers will modify a piece of the bodywork called the “tail end lower part” to correct the routing of the wiring harness and add wiring protection and cable ties. Repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 2021. KTM’s number for this recall is TB2104.
Owners may contact management at CycleVIN L.L.C. in order to obtain more information regarding this, or any other recall. CycleVIN L.L.C. management strongly advises against starting or riding the motorcycle until the repairs have been completed by your local KTM dealer. Should a short circuit occur due to a damaged wiring harness, a fire could potentially start, causing damage to life or property. Oweners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
