This recall was conducted, voluntarily by the company, under CPSC’s Fast Track Recall process. Fast Track recalls are initiated by firms, who commit to work with CPSC to quickly announce the recall and remedy to protect consumers.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard. CPSC’s work to help ensure the safety of consumer products – such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters and household chemicals -– contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.

Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.

Friend bought an '18 CRF250 with very very low hours from a guy who was the 2nd owner. He cked the serial number with Honda to see about the recall. Number was said to be one from a 450. ??? Stampings in the frame appear legit and unmolested, police dept shows no theft reports. There may be some question about the MSO but so far he cannot confirm it being good or bad.  Very strange situation.

Not too unusual with frames shared between models. Have a ktm 530 with a 450 vin for example.

It seems there is no recall in Europa. Today checked my VIN in local Honda dealer and no recall for this bike
