American Honda Motor Co. recalled its 2010 VT1300CR, VT1300CRA and VT1300CT models because they failed to conform to the certification requirements of Part 567, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
About 3,100 units that were manufactured from Dec. 17-May 24 had incorrect gross axle weight ratings (GAWR).
The NHTSA says an owner may be lead to believe from the incorrect information that the motorcycle can carry more weight than it’s certified to carry, resulting in an overloaded condition, which can increase the risk of a crash.
