KTM has announced a recall on all 2020-2022 Super Duke R motorcycles to improve the bike's main wiring harness.
According to KTM’s recall announcement, the routing of the main wiring harness has been improved since these models left the factory. In particular, in order to prevent chafing (never fun) which could damage the wiring harness over time. If this occurs, it may result in a vehicle fire. KTM techs need to retrofit a new frame cover and cable ties to the affected bikes.
As always with a recall, the work to perform the retrofitting of new parts is free and to be performed by an authorised KTM dealer.
If you happen to own a 2020-2022 1290 Super Duke R, you should have already received a letter from KTM New Zealand directing you to make an appointment with your local dealer. If you’re unsure, you can hit up the “Service” area on the KTM website to check if your bike is impacted by the recall.
