Honda announces side-by-side recall

Honda has announced the recall of 2019-2021 Honda Talon 1000 ROVs. The vehicle’s intake funnel band screw can loosen and enter the engine through the intake funnel and cause sudden engine failure. If this occurs, it can result in a loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled recreational off-highway vehicles and contact an authorized Honda Powersports dealer to schedule an appointment for a free inspection and repair, which includes proper tightening and thread deformation of the intake funnel screw. American Honda is contacting all known purchasers directly.

The firm has received a total of 18 reports of incidents, including one report of a loss of control, resulting in a crash with minor injuries to the occupants.
