Suzuki Recall of Certain 2012 AN400, AN650 and DL650 Scooters and Motorcycles

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—February 10, 2012.

Summary:  Suzuki is recalling certain model year 2012 AN400, AN650, and DL650 scooters and motorcycles manufactured prior to December 17, 2011, because the lever-mounted brake light actuating switch(es) may fail.

Consequence: On the AN400 and AN650 models, failure of the switches will prevent the scooters from starting.  On all of the affected models, failure of the brake light switch(es) may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when a scooter or motorcycle is braking, thereby increasing the risk of a crash with a trailing vehicle.

Remedy:  Suzuki will notify owners, and Suzuki distributors will replace the brake light actuating switch, free of charge.  The Safety Recall is expected to begin on or about February 13, 2011.  Owners may contact Suzuki at 714-996-7040.

Notes: Suzuki’s Recall Campaign Number is 2A26/2A27.  Owners may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY: 800-424-9153); or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
