Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has issued a recall for the CBR 250R, to rectify a possible flaw in the braking system. In a press release, the company has stated that "There is a possibility of limited ineffectiveness in front brake application, though this concern doesn't impact the overall braking functionality and effectiveness of front and rear brakes under normal riding conditions".
Around 11,500 units of the CBR 250R standard non-ABS variant, manufactured between March 2011 to September 2012 are the vehicles affected. The customers of the bikes manufactured within this period are advised to head to their nearest authorized service centre, where the bike's front brake master cylinder will be replaced free of cost, irrespective of the bike's warranty status. The repairs will be done in less than an hour.
