Honda Australia has issued a recall notice through the ACCC for the Thai made Honda NSS300 FORZA Scooter.
Owners of the 300cc scooter are being asked to contact their nearest Honda Dealer and arrange to have their scooter inspected for a possible brake fluid leak.
Honda has said that due to a possible manufacturing defect, one of the securing nuts on the rear brake hose flange may not be tightened to the correct specification.
If the bolt comes loose, brake fluid could leak from the rear brake causing it to become inoperable and posing an accident hazard to the rider and other road users.
Affected vehicles have a VIN number in the range of MLHNF04U1D5000001 to MLHNF04U3D5000064.
Owners with a scooter included in the recall are being urged to have it inspected at their earliest opportunity.
