What’s the Problem?

This recall affects Honda CRF450R off-road motorcycles from the model year 2021, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) [1].

“The firm has received two reports of the off-road motorcycle’s drive chain breaking,” CPSC said. “No injuries have been reported.”

Affected motorcycles were sold in red, with the model name CRF450R printed on a label located on both sides of the motorcycle. Honda is printed on the front and both sides of the motorcycle. Motorcycles with the last 6 digits of the VIN number between 400223 and 401056 are included in this recall.

The recalled motorcycles were sold at authorized Honda Powersports dealers nationwide from August 2020 through March 2021 for about $9,600.

If you purchased a motorcycle that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it and contact an authorized Honda Powersports dealer to schedule an appointment for a free repair.

This recall began on April 29, 2021.

Quadriplegic Man Brings Sacramento Personal Injury Lawsuit

On Oct. 1, 2009, a 36-year-old man and his friend arrived at Access ABC of the ABC Area in Sacramento County, which is owned, managed, and supervised by the State of California.

Plaintiff rode his 2005 Honda CRF 450 dirt bike into the staging area at about 9 a.m., when he hit a cable loosely connected to 2 portable concrete barriers, lost control of his bike, was thrown into the air, and landed on his head. The barriers were allegedly set up by Fish and Game employees.

He was airlifted to the hospital and underwent surgery on his cervical spine.

Plaintiff and his mother filed a complaint in the Sacramento County Superior Court against the State of California for gross negligence and negligence.

The plaintiff alleged that the cable was brown, not taut, and not properly painted or marked by strips of flags. It reportedly sagged to a height of barely five inches above the ground and that vegetation and brush obscured visibility.

He was also wearing a helmet, chest protector, riding boots, knee and elbow pads, gloves, and polarized goggles at the time of the incident.

Plaintiffs alleged that California and its employees were grossly negligent in failing to properly design the staging area and failing to inspect and maintain it to ensure the area was clear of user hazards.
