Be aware that this motorcycle recall list is for the United States for the last 30 days, there is no way I could cover the entire world. But in the world of global manufacturing, if a motorcycle is being recalled in one country there is a good chance it is under recall in others.

Also, this should not be considered a definitive list, check for yourself if you have any questions.

If you are US based use the NHTSA website Enter your VIN number to see if your motorcycle is affected by the recall.

If you are based outside the USA, use the appropriate website to locate recalls that may impact you.

Ride On, Ride Safe


There are a lot of electric motorcycle concept vehicles out there.  Most are by companies you have never heard of and, probably (as soon as the Federal “seed” money is gone) never will. But this one is different.

Husqvarna has been around for a long time and will be around for a long time more. They introduced the “E-Go Concept” bike a while back but I just ran across the bike and thought I would share.  Additionally, it looks like they have some form of partnership with BMW Motorcycles on this effort.

It is one of the few electric “dirt bike” concepts and it is really different.  The first thing I noticed was that the front suspension is on right side of bike and the rear is on the left.  Not sure how that would work in real life for it is interesting.

You can find out more on the bike at BMW Motorcycle Magazine and at
