BMW R nineTs to be recalled over potential swing-arm issue


They don’t know it yet but BMW R nineT owners are about to have their bikes recalled over a potential swing-arm issue.

A recall was launched in America in August over a bolt connecting the swing-arm pivot pin to the frame, which could loosen, creating a hazard.

Now a recall is set to be launched in the UK over the same issue, with all 2,100 bikes sold from the entire R nineT range since its introduction in 2014 reportedly affected.

A BMW source “official notifications are due out imminently” adding: “There have been no reported issues of any problems with any bikes and this recall was issued as a precautionary measure.”
