Motorcycle Safety Recall
Honda is recalling 120 of its sport-touring models, the NT700V, due to incorrect tire information on the label applied to swingarm, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported Saturday.

The Japanese motorcycle manufacturer will mail the correct tire-information label along with installation instruction to effected customers. The customer may also have a dealer install the sticker free of charge.
