American Honda Motor Co, Inc—Honda GL1800
What are the defects?
Due to atmospheric deterioration, over time, the Airbag Inflator may degrade. This may lead to over aggressive inflation in the event of an airbag deployment. In some cases, the Inflator body may rupture causing metal fragments to pass through the airbag and strike the rider.
What are the hazards?
The metal fragments may cause serious injury to the rider or, in the worst case scenario, fatal injuries.
What should consumers do?
Customers will be contacted directly by Honda, by phone and Recall letter advising them that an airbag module is available for their motorcycle and to contact their nearest, authorised, Honda dealer and arrange to have their machine inspected and repaired at their earliest opportunity.
