CFMoto Powersports is recalling its V3 and V5 automatic motorcycles, model years 2005 to 2009, because they don’t have a foot brake as required by law.
The units were manufactured between Jan. 1, 2005, and Dec. 31, 2009, with a CHG make and either a CF250T V3 or CF250T V5 model designation. The potential number of units affected is 6,405.
According to NHTSA, the units do not conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 123, “Motorcycle Controls and Displays.” The units were intended to be made as scooters and therefore lack the required rear wheel foot brake.
CFMoto Powersports will notify owners, and dealers will install a foot brake for free. The recall is expected to begin on or about July 1. Owners may contact CFMoto at 888-823-6686.
