Consumers have filed a total of 2 complaints for R1200 RT models.
First time while pulling out of a parking lot on to a city street the motorcycle suddenly lost power,misfired,cut out and would barely run and would only run at idle or a little above causing loss of control. Second time the same thing happened in the driveway while the motorbike was not moving. The third time this happened on a remote highway while moving at around 60 mph in a curve (turning). Sudden loss of power the engine went into limp mode. I had to pull over to the side of the highway and ride along the side of the road with barely enough power to move along until i could get to a safe place to pull over. On all occasions after turning off the ignition and restarting the engine it seamed to reset and run ok. This is a very hazardous situation especially at highway speeds. After doing some research i have found that this has happened to several other people and it seems that it could be a defect with the ecu and throttle position sensor.
Motorcycle has less that 30,000 miles and is less than four years old but the from tpms sensor has completely failed and no longer reads any tire pressure. I have a constant tpms failure light on my dash board. A replacement sensor is over $200 not including labor for installation and reprogramming of the on-board computer.
