KTM has recalled the 2016 250cc motocrossers marketed as the KTM 250 SX-F and Husqvarna FC 250 for defective connecting rods.

The number 13 is printed on both sides of the rear fender below the rear of the KTM seat. The Husqvarna has the logo and engine size are on both sides of the shrouds covering the fuel tank. Model year 2016 motorcycles have a letter "G" in the 10th position of the vehicle identification number (VIN), located on the right side of the steering head.

The 2016 KTM Motorcycles were sold at authorized dealers nationwide from October 2015 through March 2016. Husqvarna Motorcycles were sold at authorized dealers nationwide from October 2015 through March 2016.

At this printing, KTM has received five reports of the rod cracking. No injuries have been reported. The connecting rod in the crankshaft assembly can fracture, causing the operator to lose control of the motorcycle and crash. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled motorcycles and contact an authorized KTM or Husqvarna Motorcycles dealer to schedule a free repair.
