American Honda is recalling 2019-2021 Honda Talon 1000 S2 and S4 side-by-sides, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The vehicle’s intake funnel band screw can loosen and enter the engine through the intake funnel and cause sudden engine failure; if this occurs, it could result in a loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled vehicles and contact an authorized Honda Powersports dealer to schedule an appointment for a free inspection and repair. Honda is contacting all known purchasers directly.
The vehicles were sold in various colors including red, blue, green, gray and yellow. “HONDA” is printed on the front, sides and the rear of each vehicle. “Talon” is printed on a label located on both sides of the vehicle. The vehicle identification number (VIN) number is stamped on the frame on the left side under the left front fender.
