Honda GL1800 Gold Wing recall

Published: 22 September 2016

A vehicle safety recall notice issued by the DVSA has revealed a potential problem with the airbag system on Honda's GL1800 Gold Wing, resulting in a recall for that particular model.

The recall notice simply states the airbag may not deploy correctly.

In 2006 the Honda Gold Wing became the first motorcycle to be fitted with an airbag system, designed to activate in head-on collisions to prevent the rider flipping over the front of the bike.


A statement released by Honda UK says: "As a precautionary measure, Honda has identified a batch of Gold Wing models, manufactured between 2007 and 2008, that will have airbag inflators replaced. The remedial work will happen in two phases. First, airbag systems will be disabled. Models in question will then be booked in to have a new inflator fitted. Honda encourages Gold Wing owners to contact their Honda dealer, to establish whether their model is affected."
