All scooters manufactured between February 14-25, 2020 have been recalled for an issue that could lead to an oil leakage. Honda hasn’t revealed the number of scooters affected by this issue
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has just released an official statement announcing a voluntary recall of the Activa 6G, Activa 125 and the 2020 Dio. According to the official statement, the recall has been issued due to “a suspected quality issue in the rear cushion which may result in oil leakage or breakage and may lead to vehicle imbalance.” While the statement isn’t quite specific about the actual issue at hand, it could be in relation to the rear shock absorber. The recall is primarily for scooters manufactured from 14-25th February, 2020.
A few weeks back, the company’s official website also announced a ’service campaign’ for the BS-VI Activa 125. As part of that recall, HMSI would replace Cooling Fan Cover and Oil Gauge in your vehicle as well as update your vehicle Owner’s Manual.
Honda first brought in the BS-VI Activa 125 in September 2019, and followed it up with the launch of the Activa 6G in January 2020 and more recently the 2020 Dio last month. The Activa 6G and the Dio share the same 109.51cc, single-cylinder fuel injected motor that develops 7.7bhp and 9Nm. Meanwhile, the Activa 125 comes with a 124cc motor fuel-injected that pushes out 8.2bhp and 10.3Nm.
Aside from these three scooters, Honda has also introduced the SP125 and Unicorn, both of which are BS-VI compliant.
