Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) announced that they have completed recalling 75 per cent of the total 11,500 units of the standard variant owing to imperfection in the braking system of the bike. It’s been just four months since the Japan-based company first made an announcement and has been swift in rectifying the defects. Related: Honda Motorcycles recall CBR 250R

 

Talking on the defect, company officials said, “There are possibilities of limited ineffectiveness in front brake application, though this concern does not impact the overall braking functionality and effectiveness of front and rear brakes under normal riding conditions.”

 

The recall is only applicable for CBR 250R standard variant manufactured in India between March 2011 and September 2012 and the bikes are being repaired free of cost by Honda irrespective of the warranty status of the bike. This is the first time that the two-wheeler division of Honda has recalled a product from its portfolio while the four-wheeler unit had recalled the City in 2011 and Accord and CR-V in 2007. The company said it will be rectifying the remaining lot of bikes as soon as it can.
