American Honda Motor Co. of Timmonsville, S.C., is recalling about 32,000 Honda Talon 1000 recreational offroad vehicles (ROVs).

The vehicle’s intake funnel band screw can loosen and enter the engine through the intake funnel and cause sudden engine failure.

This could result in a loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

The firm has received 16 reports of loose intake funnel band screws entering the engine, resulting in engine damage/failure. Honda has received one report of a loss of control, resulting in a crash with minor injuries to the occupants.

This recall involves model year 2019 – 2021 Honda Talon 1000 S2 and S4 recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs) sold in various colors, including red, blue, green, gray, and yellow.

“HONDA” is printed on the front, sides, and rear of each vehicle. “Talon” is printed on a label located on both sides of the vehicle. The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) number is stamped on the frame on the left side under the left front fender.

The VIN range for affected Talon 1000s may be found here.

The ROVs, manufactured in the U.S., were sold at authorized Honda Powersports dealers nationwide from March 2019, through January 2022, for between $20,000 and $27,000.
