Yamaha India recalled 56,082 units of its scooter, Ray, after detecting insufficient strength in the handlebar of some vehicles due to inadequate welding. Yamaha said that there was a chance that in extreme cases, it might impact the steering operation.
Yamaha did not share the manufacturing dates of the scooters that will be affected by the recall but said that the company reach out to each individual customer in possession of such scooter to process the recall. Yamaha will voluntarily replace the handlebar on such scooters and the replacement will be free of charge.
The company plans to begin the voluntarily recall exercise through the 'Ray Refresh Campaign' which will be run through the company's dealership networks across the country and customers will be contacted to replace the affected part through this campaign.
The Yamaha Ray Z scooters are completely unaffected by this potential problem.
