American Honda Motor Co. is issuing a recall for motorcycles with electronics that are causing problems for riders.

The recall applies to certain model year 2012-2014 VT750CA, VT750C2 and VT750C2F, 2011-2016 VT750C, 2013-2016 VT750CS, 2010-2016 VT750C2B and 2013-2014 VT750C2S motorcycles. Engine vibration may cause the bank angle sensor wire to rub on the wire harness joint connector, resulting in a loss of the sensor signal.

Without the bank angle sensor signal, the engine may stall while riding, increasing the risk of a crash.

Honda is recalling more than 22,000 motorcycles in connection with this defect.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will relocate the joint connector and replace the bank angle sensor, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 19, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Honda customer service at (800) 999-1009.
