Post On 08-14-2013

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, a series of off-road motorcycles are being recalled over a possible crash hazard.

The federal agency has stated that Husqvarna has issued a recall for about 260 units of certain off-road motorcycles after the company noted that the throttle cable in these motorcycles could malfunction unexpectedly, which could then lead to a loss of speed control, increasing the risk of an accident.

The federal agency has stated that affected models include all units of the 2013 Husqvarna CR125, WR125, WR250 and WR300 closed course or competition motorcycles. Consumers with the affected models of motorcycles should simply stop using the motorcycles and contact the manufacturer in order to schedule a visit to a local dealer. The defective motorcycles will have any potentially defective throttle cables replaced for free.

All units of motorcycles affected by this recall were sold between October 2012 and June 2013. You can click here for the full recall announcement to learn more.
