On Dec. 22, 2022, KTM North America recalled their GASGAS off-road motorcycles due to risk of crash and injury, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Why were the GASGAS motorcycles recalled?
KTM recalled their GASGAS motorcycles because of incorrect programming in the vehicles’ circuitry. The location of the issue is in the CDI box, which controls the motorcycle’s ignition system.
While there were no reports of incidents or injuries, since the product was incorrectly programmed, the issue can lead to engine failure while riding. Potential engine failure poses a crash and injury hazard.
This product was sold nationwide at GASGAS motorcycle dealers, from December 2021 through August 2022. GASGAS motorcycles were imported from KTM North American Inc. from Amherst, Ohio, and manufactured in Austria. 231 units were included in the recall, with 40 in Canada.
GASGAS has a webpage on Safety Recall Information, where they post the latest information on safety in connection with their products.
Which KTM motorcycles were included in the recall?
The recall only lists one model. The model are officially named 2022 GASGAS MC 250 closed course competition motorcycles.
GASGAS motorcycles are red with a white GASGAS text logo on both sides of the shrouds (or the parts where the frame is covered).
Model numbers are printed on the side panels and/or rear fenders.
Consumers should immediately stop riding these motorcycles. They are dangerous to ride with incorrect programming.
