This Activa 125, Dio and Activa 6G recall is for a defective ‘rear cushion’ of these new scooters. See if yours is affected or not…
Honda has taken the lead in this transition to Bharat Stage 6 emission norms and was the first manufacturer to start with deliveries of BS6 compliant two-wheelers.
So far, in the scooter segment – it has launched upgrades of Activa 125, Activa as well as Dio – the three high selling products in their respective sub-segments. In motorcycles, we have the new Shine, SP125 and the Unicorn as the updated products.
In a latest, Honda has announced a voluntary service recall for all of its BS6 scooters – Activa 125 FI, Activa 6G and the new Dio. The reason that the company has provided is the ‘rear cushion’. It says it has identified a quality issue in the rear cushion which may result in oil leakage or breakage which may lead to vehicle imbalance. There is no further clarification and we suspect the company is talking about the rear suspension of these scooters.
Honda has also not shared the number of units that are affected but it says that only products manufactured between 14th and 25th February 2020 are a part of this recall. Considering that this is a very small window, not a very high number of buyers may have to get this rectified.
Honda says the suspected part will be replaced free of cost for all affected vehicles ‘irrespective of the warranty status of the vehicle’. The campaign has started and Honda or its dealers will contact suspected vehicle owners for inspection. Additionally, customers can also check if their scooters fall under this campaign at the official website.
