Honda Motorcycle and Scooters India Limited (HMSI) announced first two wheeler recall in India. 11500 units of Honda CBR250R bike has been recalled by company to rectify a faulty brake system. This is a voluntary recall from the company – India is yet to get guidelines for mandatory recall procedures. The affected bikes are manufactured between, March-2011 to September-2012.
“In accordance with its global commitment to provide maximum customer satisfaction and highest quality products, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India is announcing the recall of CBR 250R standard variant motorcycle,” company said in a press release.
Company’s dealers have already started communicating with Honda CBR250R customers in India. The rectification procedure is very short and won’t take more than an hour according to HMSI.
“There is a possibility of limited ineffectiveness in the front brake application, though this concern doesn’t impact the overall braking functionality and effectiveness of front and rear brakes under normal riding conditions. Honda will rectify the problem free of cost, irrespective of the warranty status of the vehicle,” HMSI added.
The Honda CBR250R is priced at Rs 1.48 lakh (ex- showroom, Delhi) in Indian market. In the recent past we have seen many recalls in four wheeler segment, but this is the first time a product from two wheeler segment has been voluntarily recalled.
So if you are a Honda CBR250R customer, you may have to make a short trip to the nearest Honda dealership to get rectified the glitch.
