The world's largest two-wheeler company Honda on Friday announced it was recalling 13,700 units of its CBR 150R and CBR 250R motorcycles manufactured between July 2014 to June 2015 from the Indian market to rectify defective starter relay switch assembly.

This is Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India's — Honda's Indian arm — second recall exercise in the country. It had recalled 11,500 units of its CBR 250R motorcycle model due to a defective brake system in 2012.

"The recall process will start in the middle of August 2015 as a precautionary measure to check and replace starter relay switch, if the vehicle belongs to the defective lot," the company said in a statement.

Honda suspects that the sealant may have been applied incorrectly during assembly of the starter relay switch that can increase resistance across main fuse potentially interrupting the motorcycle's battery voltage to the electrical system.

This in turn can cause the engine to either not start or stall while riding. In extreme cases, increased resistance at the main fuse can cause fire.

"No such incident however, has been reported in any of vehicles manufactured by us in India," the company said. "The concerned part will be replaced free of cost in the identified units irrespective of the warranty status of the vehicle across all-India Honda network."

Earlier, Honda's arch rival Yamaha recalled more than 56,000 units of its Ray automatic scooter in 2013, while Suzuki recalled 174 units of its GSX series superbikes.
