KTM North America Issues Recall for the 1290 Super Adventure, 1190 Adventure and Adventure R models.
KTM North America is recalling certain 2015-2016 models for a wiring harness issue. Listed are the 1290 Super Adventure, manufactured December 1, 2014, to March 10, 2016, and 2013-2016, and the 1190 Adventure and Adventure R models manufactured November 20, 2012, to April 25, 2016. The wiring harness can fray and contact the ABS modulator. If the brake line is electrically conductive, the brake line may overheat and melt and brake failure may result, increasing the risk of a crash.
KTM will notify owners, and dealers will re-position the wiring harness for the electronic control unit, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact KTM customer service at 1-888-985-6090.
