The Yamaha R3 has been recalled in India owing to a defective fuel tank bracket and faulty main switch sub assembly.
Yamaha India has issued an official recall for its R3 entry-level sports motorcycle under a directive from Yamaha japan. The Yamaha R3 has been recalled for two defects this time around. One of them is a defective fuel tank bracket and the other is a faulty main switch sub assembly. The defective fuel tank bracket results in a loosely mounted fuel tank which can crack and leak fuel overtime due to amplified engine vibrations. As for the main power switch, it may get corroded overtime by water and cause the motorcycle to stall.
Yamaha has issued a recall for 1,155 units of the R3 on this regard. The company will reach out to customers on an individual basis on this regard.
The recalled units of the Yamaha R3 will be fitted with modified factory replacement parts which will overcome the issue with the defective parts. This will of course be done on a free of cost basis to customers.
It would be worth noting that the Yamaha R3 has been recalled globally as well for a few issues which have been fixed by the company.
