Savatech in tyre recall

The Slovenian tyre producer Savatech is voluntarily recalling Sport Force radial motorcycle tyres from the market. These tyres were sold to customers mostly in Europe. The tyre sizes subject to recall are,

120/70 ZR17 (58W) TL SPORTFORCE MI

150/60 ZR17 (66W) TL SPORTFORCE MI

160/60 ZR17 (69W) TL SPORTFORCE MI

180/55 ZR17 (73W) TL SPORTFORCE MI

190/50 ZR17 (73W) TL SPORTFORCE MI

The company has discovered that during sustained high speed riding a bulge may appear on the tread of the tyre causing vibration and in the most extreme of cases some of the tread may become detached. “This problem has only been simulated in controlled and the most severe of conditions. The Sport Force recall is pre-emptive,” Savatech said.

Customers and suppliers can determine whether their tyre is subject to recall by checking the brand name “MITAS”, tyre name “Sport Force,” inscription “tubeless” and DOT* codes from 0114 to 2614, on the tyre sidewall. No other tyres are affected. The recalled tyres were made in Slovenia.

The recall follows a quarantine of stocks at tyre dealers. The improved Sport Force tyres will be made available at the shortest possible term.
