In cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), KTM North America voluntarily recalled about 550 model year 2009 off-road motorcycles, reported the CPSC.
The bikes were recalled due to possible front fork failure. The report said the front fork inner tube can crack and separate from the fork axle, posing a risk of injury or death to the operator. No incidents or injuries, however, have been reported.
The model name and KTM logo are located on the right and left shrouds. Specific models include orange/black 125SX, 150SX, 250XC-W, 300XC-W.
The motorcycles were sold at KTM dealers nationwide from December 2008-April for $6,000-$8,000.
