The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall includes 13 models of KTM and Husaberg brand competition/closed-course and off-road Motorcycles. Eleven 2013 KTM models are being recalled: 85 SX, 85 SXS, 125 SX, 150 SX, 150 XC, 200 XC-W, 250 SX, 250 XC, 250 XC-W, 300 XC and 300 XC-W. Two 2012 and 2013 Husaberg models are also being recalled: TE 250 and TE 300. The model number is printed on the rear fender on both sides of the motorcycles below the tail end of the seat.

2056 - KTMMotorcycleThe KTM motorcycles are colored black and orange and “KTM” is printed on the front number plate and on both sides of the shrouds covering the fuel tank. The Husaberg motorcycles are colored blue, yellow and white with the word “Husaberg” printed on both sides of the shrouds covering the fuel tank. You can identify the model year by checking the letter in the 10th position of the vehicle identification number (VIN) on the right side of the steering head. The letter “C” indicates a 2012 model; the letter “D” indicates a 2013 model.

According to the CPSC, the throttle cable can malfunction during use. If this occurs, it could result in an uncontrollable throttle: this poses a crash hazard to the rider, any passengers and those nearby.
