Husqvarna and GasGas Australia and New Zealand have today announced they are recalling models in the New Zealand market due to a problem with the front brake assembly.
The bikes involved in the recall are 2021 and 2022 GasGas EC enduro bikes and all 2022 model year Husqvarna FE and TE motorcycles.
Husqvarna and GasGas – both owned by KTM parent company PIERER Mobility Group - have discovered a deviation relating to the fitment of the locking split pins mounted to the holding bracket in the brake caliper which may result in the brake pads becoming detached from the machine.
Despite the bikes sharing key design points in a number of areas, there are no KTM models involved in the recall according to KTM, Husqvarna and GasGas Australia and New Zealand's Marketing Manager, Rosie Lalonde.
Owners of these models are required to return their machine to an authorised Husqvarna or GasGas dealer who will ensure the correct installation of the locking split pins.
Customers who have already acquired one of the above-mentioned motorcycles are also being informed by a personal letter and are asked to immediately contact an authorised Husqvarna Motorcycles or GasGas dealer to arrange an inspection appointment.
In addition, customers can check online in the ‘Service’ area of the Husqvarna or GasGas website to determine if their motorcycle is affected by this recall. The check and replacement of all parts involved will be carried out at no cost to the customer and must be performed by authorised Husqvarna Motorcycles Dealers only.
