WASHINGTON, D.C. (KYTX) - Consumers should stop using Husqvarna Closed-Course Competition Off-Road Motorcycles which is being recalled voluntarily, unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

The motorcycle's throttle cable can malfunction so the rider loses speed control, posing a crash hazard.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Husqvarna motorcycles and contact an authorized Husqvarna dealer to schedule a free repair.

This recall involves four 2013 models of Husqvarna closed course/competition motorcycles, including CR125, WR125, WR250 and WR300.

The Husqvarna two-wheeled off-road motorcycles are white, red and black. The model number is printed on the rear fender on both sides of the motorcycle just below the tail end of the seat. Husqvarna is printed on both sides of the shrouds covering the fuel tank.

Consumers can identify the model year by checking the letter in the 10th position of the vehicle identification number (VIN) on the right side of the steering head. The letter D is a 2013 model.

This motorcycle has been sold at Motorcycle shops nationwide from October 2012 through June 2013 for between $6,300 and $7,100.

Consumer should contact Husqvarna Motorcycles toll-free at (888) 985-6090 or online here.
