The Honda CBR250R can be easily credited with making the entry into the world of 250cc bikes easier for many Indian bikers. However, the baby CBR has always been in news for little niggles and quality issues.
Now, Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India (HMSI) has issued a recall to replace potentially faulty front brakes of as many as 11,500 Honda CBR250R Non-ABS bikes which were produced in the period of March- September 2012. The recall doesn’t include the C-ABS variant.
Honda India says that this recall is due to chances of reduction in the performance of front brakes in the bikes manufactured during the above mentioned period. It may be noted that the initial batches of the Honda CBR250R were found to have poor quality plastics and issues of rusting. Honda was then seen improving the quality of parts being used in the assembly of baby CBR. Right when everyone was close to forgetting these issues, the braking quality issue has emerged.
However, we do appreciate Honda for launching a voluntarily recall and undertaking the corrective measures.
