To avoid any inconvenience or waiting at the dealership, customers are requested to visit the dealership in accordance to their service appointment booked in advance.
This voluntary market action will take less than one hour and will be conducted at Honda exclusive authorized dealers all across India.
Honda said it will rectify the problem free-of-cost, irrespective of the vehicle's warranty status.
Reporting about new things is always difficult, at the moment we received the information that Honda India was issuing a recall. Honda Thailand already was aware of the problems in India... They did not confirm problems with the Thai build CBR250R.
They just answered we are studying the Indian findings and look if they will apply to our domestic production.
