Three KTM Adventure Models Recalled for Faulty Braking System

Three KTM Adventure Models Recalled for Faulty Braking System 1

The affected models are 1190 Adventure, 1190 Adventure R, and 1290 Super Adventure. It seems that there’s a potential short-circuit of the ABS modulator that could lead to brake failure. 

If your bike is affected by the recall, you should be contacted directly by an authorized KTM dealer. 

Here’s KTM’s official statement: “Following market investigations by KTM it has been determined that due to deviations in the assembly process, in isolated cases contact may occur between the wiring harness and the ABS modulator. Measurements have shown that an electrical connection may be created via the brake line between the ABS modulator and the vehicle ground. For this to occur, the wiring harness must be frayed and must be in contact with the ABS modulator and the brake line must be electrically conductive. This only occurs in very rare cases. A conductive brake line can overheat and ultimately melt which can result in failure of a brake system circuit. The routing of the wiring harness must therefore be checked and if necessary corrected at the models mentioned below.”
