Honda recall Fireblade over suspension issue

Bike may suddenly drop in height

Honda Australia has issued an official recall for their 2020 Fireblade CBR1000RR sportsbike over an issue with the suspension that could cause the bike to drop in height.

The notice, issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says the left cushion connecting plate may have been reversed when fitted and break “over time”.

“If the connecting plate breaks, the vehicle may drop in height suddenly, increasing the risk of an accident and injury or death to rider(s) and other road users,” the notice says.

Owners of the 20 affected bikes are asked to contact their nearest Honda motorcycle dealer and arrange for their motorcycle to be inspected and repaired free “at their earliest opportunity”.

It is their third recall notice this year after the CRF1000 and CRF1100 Africa Twin adventure sports bikes were recalled in February for a fuel tank fault and dirt bikes were recalled for a chain fault.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS ON RECALLS

Even though manufacturers and importers usually contact owners when a recall is issued, the bike may have been sold privately to a rider unknown to the company.
