Continental Tires have issued a safety recall on nearly 170,000 motorcycle tires worldwide. The recall affects 9000 Continental 120/70 ZR 17 and 120/70 R 17 motorcycle tires sold in the U.S. and Canada. These tires were sold between 2007 and 2014.

The issue around the tire has to do with tread or belt separation and the loss of air pressure. Continental claims that there has been no reports of accidents or injuries.
