What are the defects?

The Electronic Power Steering (EPS) on these vehicles may have a defect in the steering joint. During manufacture the yoke bolts may have been tightened out of sequence, which could cause the steering yoke to separate from the steering shaft, resulting in loss of steering.

What are the hazards?

When the steering wheel in affected vehicles is turned, the steering does not respond. The loss of steering control can increase the risk of a accident, resulting in injury or death of vehicle occupants or bystanders.

What should consumers do?

Consumers may contact any authorised Honda Motorcycle dealer, who will inspect the steering joint assembly to determine if a repair is needed.
This inspection, and repair (if needed) will be at no cost to the consumer.

For further information, consumers should contact their authorised Honda Motorcycle Dealer directly or contact the Customer Relations Department on 1300 559 846 (Monday to Friday, 8.30am- 6pm) or email customer.relations@honda.com.au or via the website https://motorcycles.honda.com.au/contactus
