As important as this bike is to BMW Motorrad sales I bet they'll jump on the problem and make it right. Just might take a while.

Obviously a manufacturing defect. BMW doesn't make their own wheels and it was an issue with their supplier. Its limited to a small few month window of productions, according to the "recall" information at BMW.
