KTM Australia has issued an urgent recall for 3 models of motorbikes.
All 2013 to 2016 KTM 1190 Adventure, 1190 Adventure R and 1290 Super Adventure Motorcycles are affected.
The company says there's a risk of the brakes heating, melting and failing.
"In isolated cases contact may occur between the wiring harness and the ABS modulator due to deviations in the assembly process."
"This will only happen if the wiring harness is frayed and in contact with the ABS modulator, and the brake line is electrically conductive."
"The conductive brake line could overheat and ultimately melt, which can result in failure of a brake system circuit."
Owners of the affected bikes will be contacted via mail. A full list of the VIN numbers of bikes affected is HERE.
In the meantime, you can contact a KTM dealer to organise an appointment for an inspection.
