BMW is contacting affected customers and replacing the oil cooler assembly free of charge.
BMW Motorrad has reportedly recalled its flagship offering, the S1000RR fearing oil leak from the oil cooler hoses. The company has discovered that the oil cooler hoses might be attached incorrectly to the oil pipes on the litre-class bike’s engine. The complication is quite fatal for both the rider and his/her surroundings as it may drop oil in the path of the rear tyre. This is because the overlay distance between the hose and the pipe, in combination with the pipe geometry, is too large.
As per the German company, 416 units of the S1000RR are affected by the recall. Having said that, it is unclear if the Indian fleet is affected by this issue. The brand is also contacting affected customers and replacing the oil cooler assembly free of charge.
The BMW S1000RR is powered by a 999cc, in-line 4-cylinder engine that produces 206.8 PS and 113 Nm of peak torque and is paired with a 6-speed transmission system. The engine now uses BMW’s ShiftCam Technology, which allows variable valve timing (VVT). This tech promises to deliver more performance throughout the rev range.
