India Yamaha recalls about 100 YZF-R1 superbikes




Company has determined a defect, which relates to Head light lead coupler overheating and melting

Two-wheeler maker India Yamaha Motor is recalling about 100 units of its superbike YZF-R1 in the country, due to a problem with the vehicle's headlight.

The recall, which is part of a global exercise undertaken by the company, covers YZF-R1 bikes sold in the country in the past 3-4 years.

"...Our parent company Yamaha Motor Co, Japan has determined that a defect, which relates to Head light lead coupler overheating and melting exists in YZF-R1 motorcycle falling within certain production numbers," Yamaha said in a statement on its website.

This headlight sub-lead must be replaced at the earliest in the motorcycles falling within certain production numbers, it added.

"Yamaha is initiating a factory modification campaign, where the affected motorcycles must get the headlight sub lead replaced with a modified one," it said.

The company added that the replacement of the faulty part would be free of cost.

According to sources, the company would recall about 100 YZF-R1 superbikes in India.


Last year, the company had recalled 56,082 units of its scooter 'Ray' after detecting insufficient strength in the handlebar of some vehicles due to inadequate welding.
