Update: Honda African Twin Recalled for Stall, Loss of Drive Power Hazard

In December 2022, Honda issued a nationwide recall for approximately 1,561 Africa Twin Africa Twin dual-clutch transmission (DCT) models from years 2020-2021 due to a problem with the engine control unit (ECU).

Specifically, the onboard diagnostics data management of the ECU was improperly programmed in affected models, producing abnormal data. This error can reset the ECU, causing the Controller Area Network (CAN) communication to disconnect and the clutch to be released, which can cause an engine stall or a loss of drive power.

Honda initiated the recall after the company received several reports of engines stalling in Japan, Italy, and Germany. While investigating, Honda also received 2 warranty claims in the U.S. market due to the same problem. Honda confirmed there was a software error that can cause sudden stalling in certain production models, prompting the company to conduct a safety recall for the units identified with the problem.
