Enduro Motorbike Recall: Defective Throttles Could Cause Crashes

A defective throttle has led to the recall of about 7,000 KTM North America and Husaberg North America competition and Enduro motorcycles.  

The competition motorcycle recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on May 29, after it was determined that the bikes could experience uncontrollable throttle. There have been no reported incidents or accidents connected to the motorcycle recall.

According to the CPSC, the problem stems from the throttle cable, which can malfunction during use. The commission determined that the bikes pose a motorcycle accident hazard to riders.

The recall affects 13 different models of KTM and Husaberg Competition/Closed Course and Enduro motorcycles, including 11 2013 KTM models and two 2012 and 2013 Husaberg models. A full list of motorcycles affected by the recall is located in the recall notice.

The motorcycles were sold at authorized KTM and Husaberg dealerships nationwide for between $5,300 and $8,450 from January 2012 to April 2013.

This is the second KTM Enduro motorcycle recall this year. In January, about 1,300 bikes were recalled due to defective pre-formed fuel hoses that could crack and leak, posing a fire hazard. There were no injuries or incidents reported in connection to that recall.

The CPSC recommends that consumers stop using the recalled motorcycles immediately and contact a KTM or Husaberg dealer to schedule a free repair. Consumers with questions can call (888) 985-6090 or visit the companies’ websites at www.ktm.com or www.husaberg.com.
