Jakarta – Kabar kurang sedap datang dari Yamaha, kini mereka sedang melakukan pembenahan dan me-recall kembali sejumlah besar unit motor yang telah terjual kepada pelanggan mereka. Kabar ini awal mulanya berhembus di Amerika Utara dan Kanada, namun Kini Inggrispun ikut me-recall produk flagship mereka ini dikarenakan masalah kecacatan pada gearbox.

Ini adalah kedua kalinya pada Yamaha setelah sebelumnya pernah melakukan recall pada R1m seputar masalah shockbreaker belakang. Telah dikonfirmasi bahwa yamaha akan mengganti unit gearbox yang bermasalah dengan yang baru. Pekerjaan ini tentunya akan menjadi PR besar karena Yamaha pastinya harus melepas mesin dari rangka untuk mengganti parts yang bermasalah tersebut.

Prosedur penggantian ini akan memakan waktu minimal 16 jam, sehingga mau tidak mau sebagian besar customer loyal mereka harus merelakan Yamaha R1 / R1M nya menginap dulu untuk bisa kembali digunakan sebagaimana biasanya.

Hal ini disebabkan kekuatan komponen yang tidak memadai. Selain itu, pada gear 3 dan 4 terdapat cacat yang bisa berakibat fatal ketika mendapat tekanan berlebih (semisal ketika mesin digeber pada RPM tinggi), dimana akibatnya transmisi bisa mengunci, menyebabkan hilangnya kontrol yang dapat mengakibatkan kecelakaan dengan cedera atau kematian.

Berikut isi pernyataan recall dari Yamaha UK :
