GL1800 Gold Wing re­call

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

A ve­hi­cle safety re­call no­tice is­sued by the DVSA has re­vealed a po­ten­tial prob­lem with the airbag sys­tem on Honda’s GL1800 Gold Wing, re­sult­ing in a re­call for that par­tic­u­lar model.

The re­call no­tice states the airbag may not de­ploy cor­rectly.

A state­ment re­leased by Honda UK says: “As a pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sure, Honda has iden­ti­fied a batch of Gold Wing mod­els, man­u­fac­tured be­tween 2007 and 2008, that will have airbag in­fla­tors re­placed. The re­me­dial work will hap­pen in two phases. First, airbag sys­tems will be dis­abled. Mod­els in ques­tion will then be booked in to have a new in­fla­tor fit­ted. Honda en­cour­ages Gold Wing own­ers to con­tact their Honda dealer, to es­tab­lish whether their model is af­fected.”
