RECALL: 2018 Honda CRF250R | News

Honda Australia has issued a recall of the 2018 Honda CRF250R due to issues with the clutch basket.

Product Safety Australia released the following information


What are the defects?
If the motorcycle is used continuously at high speed, the heat generated may cause the clutch basket to break.

What are the hazards?
If the clutch basket breaks, the broken pieces may become lodged between the gears in the transmission, causing it to lock up suddenly. This may cause the rear wheel to lock up and the motorcycle to lose stability. If the motorcycle loses stability, the rider may be thrown from the motorcycle, resulting in death or serious injury.
