Honda Translap XL750 recalled in Europe due to main stand failure

Honda Translap XL750: This recall affects all Honda Translap models manufactured between January 24 and December 1, 2023, and includes retrofitted main stands.

The Honda Translap XL750 has been recalled in Europe due to its faulty main stand, which is a part of the official accessories list.

Honda has issued a voluntary recall for the Translap XL 750 adventure motorcycle in Europe. The recall affects all models manufactured between January 24, 2023, and December 1, 2023, and includes retrofitted main stands on middleweight Adventure offerings. The main stand is part of the official accessories list on the Translap and this issue is related to the center spring of the unit.

The recall notice suggests that the central spring on the main stand may fail if the stand is raised or in the lower position. This happens due to inadequate welding due to which there is a risk of it breaking. This may cause the translap to fall while parked or the main stand to drag on the ground while riding.

The Honda Translap is available on sale in India from late 2023, but the company has not yet announced whether Indian units are affected by the recall.

Honda has not disclosed the total number of units affected by the recall, but it is limited to Europe as of now. The company has not yet announced whether other markets have also been affected by the issue. Honda Germany will contact owners affected by the recall within the next 14 days and repair the defective part free of charge.

Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) retails the Translap XL 750 in the country through its Big Wing topline dealership. The adventure bike has been sold in limited quantities in India since its launch in October last year.

The Honda Translap draws power from a 755 cc liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine that produces 91 bhp at 9,500 rpm and 75 Nm of peak torque at 7,250 rpm. The motor is mated to a 6-speed gearbox with a slip-and-assist clutch and a bi-directional quickshifter. The bike has a diamond steel frame suspended by USD front forks and a monoshock at the rear, both sourced from Showa.
