BMW has issued a recall of about 122,000 motorcycles due to brake problems, according to MCN. The German marquee has not identified the affected models, oddly enough. The OEM says there is danger of brake fluid leaking on boxer-style engines.
Update, May 19: A story from AFP has identified the affected model as BMW’s K 1200 GT.
The recall affects BMW units built since 2006. “There’s a possibility you could end up with a little bit of seepage which over an extended period could cause fluid to run low,” a UK source told Motor Cycle News.
Another source said riders do not need to stop riding; they should merely check their fluid levels. There have been no reports of accidents.
