Soft, ContiRaceAttack Comp. Medium, ContiRaceAttack Comp. Endurance, and ContiRoadAttack 2 GTW motorcyle tires, in sizes 120/70ZR17 and 120/70R17.
The report stated that the tires may experience a separation between the tread, belt, and carcass resulting in a loss of tire inflation pressure, which could increase the risk of a motorcycle crash.
Continental will notify owners, and dealers will replace the subject tires with new tires, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
