Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has announced a voluntary recall for 84 units of its premium motorcycles. These include 2020-2022 year models of the CRF1100 Africa Twin, CBR1000RR-R Fireblade, and GL1800 Gold Wing Tour.
The Indian arm of the Japanese brand said in a press statement that due to improper setting of the program in the PGM-FI unit, there is a possibility of the engine stalling while riding. The press statement further added that there are no cases of any failure reported in India to date.
As a precautionary measure, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India will carry a software update for the affected models at the BigWing Topline dealerships across India starting from 3 September, 2022. This update will be done free of cost, irrespective of the warranty status of the vehicle.
The company’s BigWing Topline dealers will notify customers via call, e-mail, or SMS for the inspection of their vehicle. Owners can also check if their vehicle falls under this campaign by submitting their unique Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on the Honda BigWing website.
