Technical advice


A defect has been identified which affects a very small number of Euro 5 Brat 125 vehicles. Safety is our number one priority, so we have taken the decision to issue a new part for ALL E5 Brat 125 motorcycles.

The issue concerns the rear swing arm pivot.

We have advised dealers to hold the sale and demonstration of this model until the new part has been distributed and fitted to all E5 Brat 125’s. We are supplying replacement parts to all dealers.

We have contacted all owners of E5 Brat 125s registered for warranty by letter and/or email with details of the recall, instructions for use of the vehicle and next steps to book in works. The advice is for owners to refrain from using their motorcycle. Owners should organise to return their motorcycle as soon as they are able to their dealer, who will then complete the necessary work as soon as possible. If you are a second owner or have sold your bike on, please notify us via email on giving the VIN and registration of the vehicle.

We apologise for the inconvenience and endeavour to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
