Honda issued a recall for four models due to faulty front disc brake.
All models that are part of the recall were manufactured between 4 Feb and 3 July 2019.
If defects are found, the part will be replaced free of cost.
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India have issued a recall for four of its models with front disc brakes – the Activa 125, Aviator, Grazia and CB Shine. The recall is due to a possibly faulty front brake master cylinder, which could jam and in extreme cases, prevent the front wheel from rolling. The recall has been issued for the four mentioned models manufactured between 4 February and 3 July 2019. Just over 50,000 units combined are affected by this recall.
Honda will be getting in touch with the owners regarding the recall and will examine the master cylinder. If the defect is present, the part will be replaced free of cost, irrespective of the status of warranty of the product.
Recalls have always been viewed in the Indian market in a negative light, unlike in developed markets, where it is perceived as a positive, proactive step from the manufacturer to prevent inconvenience or even a mishap to the customer. It is an encouraging sign that HMSI has issued a recall and is being proactive about rectifying the faults if any.
