Among the twenty (20) recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

BMW of North America, LLC (“BMW”) has recalled an estimated 29,281 model year 2013-2017 R1200GS, F800R and F800GT Motorcycles, 2014-2017 R1200GS Adventure Motorcycles, 2016-2017 S1000XR motorcycles and 2015-2017 R1200R and R1200RS Motorcycles.

When equipped with the optional aluminum luggage cases, the rear reflex reflectors may be partially blocked. The aluminum case mounts for the R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure may also partially block the reflectors. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”

According to the NHTSA, if the rear reflex reflectors are obscured from view, it can increase the risk of a crash.
