KTM has issued a recall of the 2014 1290 Super Duke because of fears that the bike’s petrol tank could leak fuel.
The announcement has been made in various markets around the world, because the tank construction was outsourced the factory says that it can be sure that the issue is only applicable to the 2014 model of the bike.
According to KTM, the problem lies in the bike’s threaded inserts that attach the internal overflow pipe to the fuel tank. Irregularities in the coating process of this material could cause a fuel leak. The bike’s internal overflow pipe may not have been completely enclosed in plastic during the manufacturing process, further adding to the risk.
