Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—November 5, 2011.
Summary: Honda is recalling certain model year 2010 NT700V motorcycles manufactured from November 26, 2009, through November 27, 2009, for failing to comply with the requirements of part 567, “Certification.” A tire information label applied to the swingarm may display incorrect tire size and air pressure specifications.
Consequence: Improper inflation of tires may affect vehicle handling and lead to premature tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Honda will mail the correct tire information label along with installation instruction. At the customer’s option, a dealer can perform the installation for them free of charge. The Safety Recall is expected to begin on or about November 11, 2011. Owners may contact Honda at 866-784-1870.
Notes: Honda Safety Recall number is S02. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
