Reasons the product is recalled

The tyres may have thin innerliner gauge that could develop into a tyre failure.

The hazards to consumers

If the innerliner of the tyre degrades this increases the risk of tyre failure, which could lead to rapid loss of inflation pressure and loss of motorcycle control increasing the risk of an accident.

What consumers should do

Consumers should contact the dealer from which they purchased their tyres to arrange an inspection and a replacement of affected tyres, free of charge.
Driving at high speeds should be avoided until the tyres have been inspected and replaced if they fall within the DOT Tyre Identification Numbers.
