Calls are going out, advising owners of ESA-equipped 2014 RTs (water-cooled) to immediately cease riding. Information is scant, but this is apparently the BMW statement:
"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."
