Motorcycle info about licenses, trikes, sidecars, scooters and more!
It has a scooter engine and automatic transmission, but it looks a lot more like a automatic motorcycle than like a scooter. Apparently, this can become tricky legal territory for a manufacturer.
Because there is no foot operated rear brake on these machines, CFMOTO Powersports, Inc. is having to recall all 2005-2009 models of CHG / CF250T V3 and CHG / CF250T V5 in the USA. The lack of missing foot operated rear brake means that these machines fail to meet a US federal safety standard for motorcycle controls.
Beginning around July 1, 2010, CFMOTO will have their dealers install a right foot operated rear brake kit at no charge. Customers can contact CFMOTO Powersports by telephone at 888-823-6686. This recall is National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Campaign number 10V027000. Owners can also contact the NHTSA at888-327-4236.
