The best way to avoid getting hit on a motorcycle is to be seen. It seems pretty obvious, but with the number of people I see riding in all-black outfits with matte black helmets etc, it might not be obvious to everyone.
Most motorcycles have lights and reflectors to improve visibility, even if the rider does not. However, if you own a 2020 or 2021 Honda motorcycle, these reflectors may not pull their weight, figuratively speaking. Luckily Honda has issued a recall to fix the issue and it’s just a matter of swapping out the faulty reflectors for new ones.
The recall concerns the 2020-2021 Super Cub C125, CB500X,, CBR300R, CBR500R, CBR650R, Rebel 300, Rebel 500 and Monkey; 2020 CRF250L and Grom; and 2021 CRF300L and CB500F – approximately 13 Honda models in total.
If you own any of these affected motorcycles, you can expect to hear from Honda on or around July 23. If you need more information, you can contact Honda at 1-866-784-1870 and refer to the KM3 recall.
Until your motorcycle is repaired, consider not riding it or wearing gear with retro-reflective properties to ensure you are seen by motorists.
