Among the 76 recalls the NHTSA has announced this January comes news of the following:

American Honda Motor Co. (“Honda”) has recalled an estimated 960 model year 2009-2010 and 2012-2016 Honda GL1800 Gold Wing Motorcycles. These Motorcycles have air bag inflators assembled as part of the air bag module that may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to higher absolute humidity, temperature and temperature cycling.

According to the NHTSA, an Inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

What to do next? Honda will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the air bag module, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Honda Motorcycle Customer Support at 1-866-784-1870. Honda’s number for this recall is KJ1.
