    Summary

    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.

    Remedy

    BMW will notify owners, and dealers will update the motorcycle's software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 25, 2017. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
