Unicorn 160 & Hornet Recall is a genuine acceptance from Honda since not many issues are reported online…

According to Honda, few customers of Unicorn 160 and Hornet 160R have reported clock-related issues on their motorcycles. As a proactive step, the company has announced a recall of the said motorcycles.

Honda says, they will inspect the vehicle for the issue (non-functional clock) and if required they will change the complete digital meter assembly. All this obviously will be free of cost to the customer.

It must be noted that you are covered in this recall irrespective of your warranty status which means even if your motorcycle is out of warranty, your vehicle’s digital display will be replaced if the issue is found.

Hornet recall
The issue pertains to non-functional clocks in some models.

Hornet Recall – What You Need to Do?

  • First check if your motorcycle is under this service campaign by entering its VIN No or Frame No on Honda’s official website. Do note that this pertains to only the two aforementioned 160 cc motorcycles.
  • If found faulty, you can connect with your local service centre and schedule an advance appointment.
Apart from Hornet 160R,the other motorcycle affected is the Unicorn 160

Interestingly, we have not heard of many such issues on either of these motorcycles and it is indeed honest on the part of Honda to issue a recall and get the part changed. This is very unlike our Indian manufacturer Royal Enfield who continued to sell terribly sub-standard Himalayan for almost a year before the hue and cry became so widespread that they eventually were forced to stop sales.

    Saad, Although I am not big fan of REs but I am noticing one thing. You always try to bring Himalayan and leave no stone unturned to declare Himalayan as piece of junk…

    • Reeto

      That’s also coz the Himalayan is nothing more than JUNK. Most RE motorcycles are sold on the back of emotions, however this time the buyers were so fed up that they ran dry of sentiments

        Let me rephrase myself.. Point wasn’t about quality of a product of RE. That’s a different discussion altogether .. Point was “Way of handling Recall”.. Please read these lines from above article

        ” it is indeed honest on the part of Honda to issue a recall and get the part changed.

        So comparison is between handling the recall..

        Now I would like to mention from “BikeAdvice” itself that “Hero MotoCorp” also handled recall of “Maersto Edge, Maestro Duet” as per article published on 21st March here and also the recall of “Splendor iSmart” as per article published on July 4th in BikeAdvice..

        If RE is culprit in mishandling recall of one product then Hero is culprit of mishandling of 3 products.. So according to this fact, when Saad can mention RE, he should have also mentioned “Hero”…

        100% agree with Saad and Reeto! I love Royal Enfeild especially the bullet 500 std…but still their quality of parts is below standard and this is Gods honest truth!No excuse for that!

        As I said, this article is about handling the recall.. Quality of any manufacturer’s isn’t a question here..

        I used RE 350 94 model for 5 years which my father bought.. Ride quality at high speeds is like sitting on a washing machine with spinner in action.. Panic breaking is worst among all RE motorcycles.. but they don’t have any direct competition from any other manufacturer presently..
