BMW Motorrad is recalling their “BMW Sport Helmet” saying they “do not fully meet the approval test requirements according to the European standard UNECE R 22.05. BMW Motorrad has therefore decided to take these helmets off the market.” They did add that “there is no safety risk to users of the helmet.” The helmets can be identified by their eight digit number found on the chin strap label. Only helmets with the ID 059241/P are affected — no other BMW Motorrad helmets (e.g. “System helmet,” “Race” or “Enduro”) are affected by this campaign.
Owners of the affected helmet are asked to hand them in at an authorized BMW Motorrad dealership. Regardless of the age of the helmet, they can be exchanged for another BMW Motorrad helmet or another BMW Motorrad product of equal value.
Note: BMW Motorrad helmets are not sold in the USA.
