Yamaha Motor Australia has recalled its three-wheeler Niken as well as their FJR1300, MT09, MT10, XT1200 motorcycles from 2013-2020 over an issue with the brake switch.
The official recall notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says the faulty brake switch could “inhibit the cruise control and constantly illuminate the rear brake lights”.
“If the rear brake lights constantly illuminate, other road users will not know if the brakes are applied, increasing the risk of an accident or injury or death to the rider(s) and/or other road users.”
Owners of affected motorcycles should contact a Yamaha Dealer to arrange an appointment to have the brake switch replaced, free of charge.

Even though manufacturers and importers usually contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.
