MUNICH, 25-11-2015 — /EuropaWire/ — BMW Motorrad is recalling the motorcycle helmet model “BMW Sport Helmet”. Owners are asked to hand their helmet in at an authorised BMW Motorrad dealership. Regardless of the age of the helmet, the relevant model can be exchanged for another BMW Motorrad helmet or another BMW Motorrad product of equal value.
The helmets in question can be identified by the eight-digit number to be found on the label on the chin strap. Only helmets with the ID 059241/P are affected. There is no safety risk to users of the helmet.
The helmet models “BMW Helmet Sport” do not fully meet the approval test requirements according to the European standard UNECE R 22.05. BMW Motorrad has therefore decided to take these helmets off the market.
No other BMW Motorrad helmets (e.g. “System helmet”, “Race” and “Enduro”) are affected by this campaign.
