Last week, we wrote about a recall in Canada for the ABS system on the 2014 Honda CTX700N and the CTX700T (known everywhere else as simply the CTX700), affecting 13 units north of the border. We can now confirm that the recall also affects U.S. models as well as models from other manufacturers using the same components from Nissin.
To date, Honda, Suzuki and Kawasaki have each announced similar recalls for ABS modulators supplied by Nissin. This opens the possibility that more recalls from more manufacturers and other models sharing the same flawed component will be announced in the weeks to come. We’ve reached out to Nissin asking for a comment but have yet to receive a response.
We did hear from Honda’s Jon Seidel who confirmed with Motorcycle.com that a recall has been filed for the CTX models with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and both dealers and customers should begin receiving notifications shortly. The recall affects the CTX700N and CTX700 models with the dual-clutch transmission and ABS package.
