Honda Recalls VT750 Motorcycles

Motorcycle Recall

Honda has recalled 3,020 VT750 motorcycles (Shadow, Phantom), model year 2010 and 2011, due to electrical system issues.

Honda says the VT750 motorcycles produced from June 25, 2009, to March 28, 2011, have defective bank angle sensors that could create an erroneous reading and cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Honda will replace the affected bank angle sensors. The recall is estimated to begin on June 20, 2011. Owners may contact Honda Motorcycle Customer Service at 1-866-784-1870 (Honda Safety Recall No. R80.)
