KTM Recalls Husqvarna 701 Vitpilen and Svartpilen Motorcycles Due to Faulty License Plate Bracket

KTM North America recalled 1,506 model year 2018-2020 Husqvarna Motorcycle 701 Vitpilen and model year 2019-2020 701 Svartpilen motorcycles due to potential safety risk.

The gear teeth on the license plate holder and swingarm may be positioned incorrectly, possibly resulting in a loose rear axle nut, causing the license plate holder to contact the rear wheel.

License plate bracket interference with the rear wheel can increase the risk of a crash or injury.

Dealers will inspect and realign the gear teeth on the license plate holder and swingarm, and inspect the tightness of the rear wheel axle collar free of charge.

There have been no reported incidents or injuries to date.
