Nobody's perfect, including manufacturers.
We all hate hearing that our beloved motorcycles have been included in a safety recall. It happens all the time, though. It's not a bad thing. Manufacturers, whether on their own or through government influence, discover flaws in their designs after their bikes have already left the factory. Recalls cost the owner nothing, and make your bike safer, so there's no reason not to get your ride fixed.
Here's a compilation of recalls that we covered in 2018. Be sure to click the link on each slide to read the details on each particular recall if you happen to have one of these bikes.
