An issue with the brakes has led BMW to recall the G 310 R (2017-2020), G 310 GS (2018-2020) and the C 400 X scooter (2019). A total of 5,938 units are affected by this recall in the United States.
According to recall information from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA), exposure to certain environmental and treatment conditions can lead to corrosion on the surface of the non-anodised brake calliper piston bore. This can affect the piston’s clearance within the bore of the caliper. A corroded brake caliper can freeze up, preventing the brake pads from coming in contact with the disc or from releasing it.
BMW North America has said that it will notify affected owners, and BMW dealers will replace the front and rear brake calipers, free of charge.
BMW India has confirmed that no bikes in the country have been affected by this problem.
