Honda has announced a recall for a part due to a risk of detachment.

The automaker is recalling certain accessory rear trunk bases, part numbers 08L71-K35-J00, 08L70-KZY-910, and 81200-KWN-780, used to mount accessory trunks on Honda PCX125 and PCX150 scooters. The locking hook of the accessory removable trunk may not fully engage to the trunk mounting base, allowing the trunk to inadvertently detach.

If the trunk detaches while riding, it may become a road hazard and increase the risk of a crash.

The company is including about 1,500 units in its recall.

Remedy parts are not currently available. Honda will send owners an interim notification to instruct them not to use the trunk or to visit a dealer for a temporary remedy. When parts are available, owners will receive a second notification and dealers will install a newly designed trunk base, free of charge.

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