"...Our parent company Yamaha Motor Co, Japan have determined that a defect, which relates to Head light lead coupler overheating and melting exists in YZF-R1 motorcycle falling within certain production numbers," Yamaha said in a statement on its website.

This headlight sub-lead must be replaced at the earliest in the motorcycles falling within certain production numbers, it added.

"Yamaha is initiating a factory modification campaign, where the affected motorcycles must get the headlight sub lead replaced with a modified one," it said.

The company added that the replacement of the faulty part would be free of cost.

Last year, the company had recalled 56,082 units of its scooter 'Ray' after detecting insufficient strength in the handlebar of some vehicles due to inadequate welding.
