Airbag inflator recall

The global Airbag Inflator Recall affects a number of automotive manufacturers and poses a very high safety risk. Please see below for more information and to check if your GL1800 motorcycle is affected.

Take immediate action

The danger to you

In the event of an impact where the airbag is deployed, the inflator part of the airbag may ignite in such a manner that it creates excessive internal pressure. As a result the metal inflator casing may rupture, causing metal fragments to be propelled out through the airbag. 

This could result in a serious injury or in worst case death.

What you should do next

Please check to see if your motorcycle is affected. If it is, please urgently contact your preferred Honda Dealer to have the necessary components replaced free of charge.

What Honda will do

Whilst the upgraded inflator components are being manufactured, Honda will temporarily disable the airbag as a safety precaution. The work will take 20 minutes to complete.

At the beginning of 2017, the inflator component will then be replaced with a new, modified part and affected customers will be notified of this by letter.

Our commitment to you

We have been and will continue to work closely with the authorities to notify all owners of affected vehicles.

The notification letter advises owners of the actions to take, however, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact your local Honda dealer.

Replacement parts and availability

We will continue to work closely with our suppliers and dealership network to ensure part availibility to treat your vehicle.
