In June, BMW ordered dealers to stop selling and owners to stop riding its spanking-new RT. The issue is the potential for failure in the shock. Before the recall, there were two failures on customer bikes in Europe. The shock supplier, Tenneco, was able to consistently reproduce the failure on the bench. (Tenneco is the parent of Monroe and Marzocchi, among others.) At that point, Tenneco informed BMW through a legal document that failure of the shock was possible, and as soon as that happened, BMW had to stop everything, develop a fix, and distribute the replacement shocks as fast as it could. Reportedly, around 8,000 bikes are affected worldwide.
