Grips on a motorcycle might seem like a minor detail, but they play a critical role in rider safety. By preventing hands from slipping, they ensure control of the vehicle and prevent potential accidents.

This control is especially important for Honda’s CRF line of off-road motorcycles, designed for demanding situations like trails and motocross.

Recognizing a potential safety risk, Honda recently issued a recall for over 40,000 CRF bikes sold in the US.

The recall concerns a possible issue with the left-hand grip that could lead to handlebar detachment and increase crash risk.

While the cause and solution are still under investigation, the recall applies to around 40,700 CRF50F, CRF110F, and CRF125F models manufactured in China between September 2022 and May 2024.

The recall involves 2023-2024 model year CRF50F, CRF110F, and CRF125F motorcycles. These models can be identified by their color (red for CRF125F, red or white for CRF50F/CRF110F) and the “Honda” imprint on the seat.

The model name is located on the frame. To verify if a specific bike is included, owners can check the VIN (located on the steering head) by calling Honda at 866-784-1870. The recall number is 24-288.

According to Honda, there’s one reported crash with a knee injury linked to this issue. Let’s take a closer look at these bikes: the CRF50F, a popular youth model, the CRF110F, another beginner-friendly option that recently received an update, and the CRF125F. Their prices range from $1,799 to $3,499.
