Honda has announced the recall of around 11,500 vehicle units of Standard edition of its premium bike named, CBR250R.
The bikes fabricated and marketed in the Indian market have been recalled because of the faulty brake system.
Japanese automobile maker’s completely-owned arm, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India, is recalling the motorcycles that were made between March last year to September this year.
In a report, HMSI stated, “In line with its worldwide commitment to offer up maximum client satisfaction and best products, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) is declaring the recall of CBR250R Standard variant bike.”
The repair work will take just less than an hour.
Elaborating on the trouble, HMSI stated: “There is a chance of limited uselessness in front brake app, though this worry doesn’t impact the overall braking practicality and efficiency of front and back brakes under normal riding circumstances.”
“Honda will repair the trouble without charging any cost, irrespective to the warranty status of the motor vehicle,” the company said.
The Standard edition of the CBR250R is presently obtainable for around Rs 1.48 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
While talking about this exercise, HMSI said: “This voluntary shift, the first time by any two-wheeler maker in the Indian market, is intrinsic to Honda’s pro-activeness as a accountable maker, which will further augment ownership practice and fortify client belief and assurance in the brand.”
In 2011, the company’s former JV, Honda Siel Cars India (HSCI), had called back 72,115 units of its mid-sized sedan City to restore the faulty power window switches.
