Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India have announced a recall for 11,500 units of the standard variant of the CBR250R that had been manufactured in India between March 2011 and September 2012 for a brake related issue.
The company, in a statement on its website, has said “there is possibility of limited ineffectiveness in front brakes application in the standard variant of CBR 250R. But this concern does not impact the overall braking functionality and effectiveness of front and rear brakes under normal riding conditions.” The statement added that Honda would voluntarily replace the “Front Brake Master Cylinder Assembly” in the affected vehicles, irrespective of the status of their warranty.
Honda has said its authorised dealers will inform the concerned customers via email and telephone and that the corrective action, to be done free of cost, would take less than an hour to complete. The Japanese bikemaker has also said that concerned customers should make an advanced booking to avoid any form of inconvenience. Click here to check if your CBR250R is a model that needs to be fixed.
