Honda has recalled three of its automatic scooters, the Activa 125, Grazia and Aviator for an issue in the front fork. The issue is with a specific bolt on the front fork, which is said to be excessively hard.
Honda service centres across the country will inspect and replace the bolt if required. The bolt will be replaced free of cost and the Honda dealerships will notify the customers soon. The recall has affected 56,194 units of Activa 125, Grazia and Aviator.
Point to be noted is that the Activa 4G and Activa 5G are not affected by this recall as both the scooters use different suspension setup. The Activa 125, Grazia and Aviator manufactured between February 7, 2018, and March 16, 2018, will be checked for the faulty bolt.
Customers can also check if their scooters are affected by this recall by entering their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on the campaign section of the Honda's official website. Customers might also receive a text message, e-mail or a phone call regarding the recall.
The Honda Activa 125 and Aviator were launched in India a few years ago, but the Grazia is the company's new flagship scooter which was launched recently. The Grazia and the Activa 125 draws power from the same 125cc engine producing 8.5bhp and 10.5Nm of torque.
On the other hand, the Honda Aviator shares its engine with the newly launched Activa 5G and draws power from a 110cc engine producing 8bhp and 8.77Nm of torque. The Honda Grazia has been a hit in the Indian market with all the premium features and new styling.
