The Italian motorcycle company, Ducati, has announced a national recall of specific motorcycles due to fuel leaks.
The Hypermotard models that are affected were manufactured in 2011 between June 25 and November 30. There are 913 motorcycles that were produced during that timeline. These models have the potential for fuel leaks because of micro-cracking in their fuel lines. These leaks could start fires if left unattended.
Ducati plans on informing the owners of these particular models, and will fix the problem with the fuel line free of charge.

Suzuki has announced a national recall of several models of their 2012 scooters and motorcycles.
The scooters and motorcycles affected by the recall were manufactured before December 17, 2011. The models include AN400, AN650, and DL650. These models were all recalled due to a malfunctioning brake light switch.
The brake light switches may cause the lights to not turn on, even when the motorcyclist is trying to brake. This could lead to an elevated risk for accidents, due to the trailing car being unable to see that the motorcycle is, in fact, stopped. Suzuki also made the announcement that they will fix the problem at any of their authorized locations.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, along with Honda, has declared a recall on 126,000 Honda Goldwing motorcycles.
An issue with the secondary brakes is the reason for the national recall. The master cylinder on the brakes has the potential to pull down the rear brakes of the bike, increasing the chance to be involved in an accident.
This recall affects the GL 1800 models of the Honda Goldwing that were manufactured between 2001 and 2010 as well as the 2012 models. Beginning in January, owners of these recalled motorcycles can have their bike inspected and fixed for free at any Honda dealership.

Difficulty with a switch on certain Harley-Davidson motorcycles is the reason behind a recall that affects over 300,000 bikes.
The faulty switch can lead to brake lights not working and may even cause the rear brakes to not work. The reason this switch can malfunction is due to the amount of heat it comes into contact with from the exhaust system. Harley-Davidson estimates that this glitch can cost them up to $12 million to repair.
Notifications to owners of these malfunctioning bikes will be sent via e-mail. A switch replacement kit will be installed for free at any official Harley-Davidson dealer.
