- MT-03, R3 recalled
- Issue with incorrect VIN labelling
Yamaha has recalled a few thousand motorcycles in USA due to incorrect VIN labelling issue. The YZF-R3, MT-03 and the Xmax CZD300 motorcycles have been affected by this recall.
According to the company, these affected models have been manufactured between 2019 and 2020 and a total of 8281 models are a part of this initiative. Yamaha factory workers inadvertently only confirmed the last few characters of the VIN instead of confirming the complete 17-digit number when applying motor vehicle certification label. This can result in the VIN on the label not matching the VIN stamped on the frame of the bike.
This issue could result into various issue while registering a motorcycle and thus affecting the legal aspects of the motorcycles. Yamaha has already addressed this issue inside the factory and will also the issues of the affected customers by contacting them through the dealership.
