BMW has recalled all 80 of its Motorrad RnineT motorcycles sold through Euro Auto, BMW’s official distributor in Viet Nam, due to an issue where the right-side swingarm pivot pin bolts may loosen.

These bolts are used to direct the rear of the vehicle, as well as the fulcrum for the rear suspension system. Therefore, if the bolts that connect the right-side swingarm pivot pin to the frame are loose, they will seriously affect safety when the vehicle enters a corner, drives on rugged terrain or decelerates.

In order to ensure the safety of users and the benefits of consumers, Euro Auto decided to recall the motorcycles, which was produced from August 2014 to November 2016, to test and tighten the bolt bearings.

The recall programme will end on September 27, 2018.

The time to check and fix errors on each vehicle takes about one hour.

In September 2017, BMW had also recalled all 79 of its Motorrad line R1200GS and R1200GS Adventure motorcycles due to a faulty suspension system. — VNS
