KTM North America Inc., of Murrieta, Calif., has recalled about 6,117 Off-Road Motorcycles. The motorcycle handlebar clamp can develop cracks during normal use causing the handlebars to move from their set position. This can result in the rider losing control of the vehicle, posing a fall or crash hazard. KTM says it received a report of one incident in which the consumer was hospitalized from injuries received in a crash after the handlebar clamps cracked and failed to secure the handlebars.
This recall involves all 2011 KTM and Husaberg off-road/competition motorcycles. The affected KTM bikes are orange and black in color with the model name and KTM™ logo located on the right and left shrouds. The affected Husaberg bikes are blue, yellow and white in color with the model name and Husaberg logo located on the right and left shrouds. Authorized KTM and Husaberg dealers sold the motorcycles nationwide from April 2010 through May 2011 for between $6,200 and $9,500.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled motorcycles and contact authorized KTM and Husaberg dealers to schedule a free repair. For additional information, consumers should contact authorized KTM or Husaberg dealers. Authorized dealers can be located by going to www.ktm.com or www.husaberg.com.
