Continental Tire is recalling certain ContiMotion motorcycle tires, size 180/60R16 M/C 74H produced from December 19, 2010, through September 24, 2011. The tires were sold as replacement equipment for Honda GoldWing 1800 motorcycles. Some of these tires may experience uneven wear, groove cracking, and belt lift. This could result in a loss of inflation pressure.

A loss of inflation pressure while riding could cause the motorcycle operator to lose control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Continental Tire will notify owners and reimburse customers for the affected tires. The recall began February 20, 2013. Owners may contact Continental Tire customer service toll-free at 1-888-799-2168.
