New Honda CBR1000RR Recalled in the US: Here comes a bad news for Honda fans in the US. The all-new CBR1000RR and its SP Variant has been listed under a recall for a fuel tank issue. Honda has not clarified anything regarding the Indian market but Honda US estimates that almost 2443 units are affected under the recall. Engineers at Honda feel that their might be a gap between fuel filler neck and fuel tank cap seal, resulting in the entry of water into the fuel tank. Water in the fuel tank will reach the engine soon and result in stalling of the motorcycle at uneven point.

Honda US will soon start informing the owners about this issue. The brand has promised a zero cost replacement of the fuel tank cap.

It features an all new performance benchmark with 999cc, four cylinder engine producing 189 BHP and 114 Nm of torque.

It is even the least expensive option among its rivals, carrying a price tag of INR 16.80 lakh in India. The 16 liter fuel tank can help a rider claim 250 kms in a single stretch. The SP version weighs even 1 kg lower than the standard CBR1000RR.
