Honda Adds Motorcycles to Takata Recall List
About the Honda Motorcycle Recall
FOX News reports that while the Gold Wing Airbag touring bike was the first motorcycle to feature an airbag safety device in 2006, the models of the motorcycle built through 2010 used the type of non-desiccated inflator module that has caused several airbag ruptures linked to at least 10 automobile accident deaths.
Honda reports that no ruptures involving motorcycles have been reported. While owners of the affected models will be notified within 60 days about the recall, replacement parts and repairs won’t be available until the fall.
Vehicles made by BMW, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, and Toyota are also affected by the recall, according to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). When deployed, the Takata airbags can explode, sending metal shrapnel that can injure and potentially kill drivers and passengers.
