Recently, Honda issued a recall for 28,000 of their 2020 and 2021 motorcycles over the reflectors being too dim. Honda’s recall affects about thirteen models in total. Luckily for Honda, the reflector replacements are an easy fix, involving merely replacing the old ones with new ones.
Very likely most experienced motorcyclist has had the frightening experience of someone not seeing them, and either because the car driver was not paying attention or because of the conditions, almost turning into them or cutting into their lane. Thus, we all know too well the importance of being visible to other drivers. It is obvious the best way to avoid this type of crash is to be seen by other vehicles on the road.
Generally, most motorcycles have lights and reflectors to help with visibility, even if the rider is wearing all black. Unfortunately for the owners of the 2020 and 2021 Honda motorcycles, the reflectors are too subdued and not properly reflective. Due to the reflectors being too dim, Honda has issued a recall. The recall will affect 2020-2021 Super Cub C125, CB500X, CB650R, CBR300R, CBR500R, CBR650R, Rebel 300, Rebel 500 and Monkey; 202 CRF250L and Grom; and 2021 CRF300L and CB500F.
