Honda CBR250R

Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has recalled its flagship model in India, the Honda CBR250R ‘Standard’ or Non-ABS motorcycles manufactured between March-2011 and September-2012 for a limited front brake malfunction. A total of 11,500 units of standard variant CBR250R recalled. This recall doesn’t include the C-ABS variant.

Although it is well known fact that the CBR250R is one of the most advanced bikes available in India, but the bike has been facing issues since its beginning. Most of the problems arise due to the poor material quality. Honda CBR250R motorcycles have already faced a recall in initial phases to fix problems like poor plastic quality and paint peeling issues. However, the later bikes have got better plastic and paint quality.

Now when everyone was close to forgetting the above issues, the braking quality issue has emerged. The latest recall is to fix the front brakes of the standard variant of the CBR250R, Honda says that the brakes of the bike can lead to failure in some certain conditions and Honda will replace the master cylinder of the front brake through this recall.

Authorised Honda dealers are informing customers whose motorcycles require attention, and customers can also visit the HMSI website at to check whether their bike requires work.
