BMW Recalls 2014-2017 R1200RT Police Motorcycles Since Brake Lights On These Motorcycles May Not Illuminate When the Brakes Are Applied

BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain 2014-2017 R1200RT Police motorcycles.

While being used in a special operating mode, the brake lights on these motorcycles may not illuminate when the brakes are applied. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

If the brake light does not illuminate, other drivers may not know that the motorcycle is stopping, increasing the risk of a crash.

911 units are affected.
