A statement from BMW reads: “We regret to inform you that with immediate effect all 2014 R 1200 RT with Dynamic ESA must not be ridden. At this moment, we cannot guarantee that the plunger rod assembly for the rear suspension unit will not fail.
“Customers of affected machines will be contacted by their dealer immediately and asked not to ride their motorcycle. Whilst this is extremely disappointing for our customers their safety is BMW Motorrad’s priority.”
A BMW spokesman told us that around 2/3 of the 500 RTs already sold in the UK have Dynamic ESA, but that dealers would be completing the work as quickly as possible, and would of course always endeavor to supply their customers with a courtesy bike.
