2011 Yamaha Vino Classic Recalled for Drum Brake Issue

Thu, 26 Sep 2013

Yamaha is recalling 2011 Vino Classic scooters because of a problem with its brakes. More specifically, the brake shoe linings may separate from the shoe due to a lack of proper adhesion, reducing brake performance and increasing the risk of a crash. The problem can affect both the front and rear drum brakes.

According to documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Yamaha Motor Corp. U.S.A. was alerted by the issue on Sept. 1 by Yamaha’s Taiwan subsidiary which produces the Vino Classic. Yamaha Motor Taiwan discovered the problem during a quality control review and testing of exported models.

Yamaha dealers will contact owners of affected units and replace both front and rear brakes. The recall campaign affects 320 units in the U.S.
