TOKYO, Dec. 13 (Kyodo) — Honda Motor Co. notified the transport ministry on Thursday that it will recall 20,932 motorbikes of two models produced between December 2007 and November this year for defective brake lights.

The brake lights may not turn on if water gets inside the headlight area, accumulates around the branch point of electrical wiring beneath the fuel tank and makes its way into the brake switch, causing rust inside, according to Honda and the Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Ministry.

The models subject to the recall starting Friday are the CB400 Super Four and the CB400 Super Bol D'or, they said.
