DETROIT — Nissan Motor Co. is recalling more than 188,000 Nissan and Infiniti SUVs worldwide to fix faulty brake control software that could increase the risk of a crash.

Nissan says that during light braking on rough roads, the antilock brake software could cause longer-than-expected stopping distances. The company said no crashes or injuries have been reported.

Also,Suzuki is recalling 210,228 motorcycles in the United States because the front brakes might not work properly.

The recall involves GSX-R600 and GSX-R750 motorcycles from the 2004 through 2013 model years and GSX-R1000 motorcycles from the 2005 through 2013 model years.

Suzuki says there have been no injuries related to the defect.

The company says older brake fluid and corrosion of the brake piston inside the front brake master cylinder can form a gas that reduces fluid pressure transmission to the front brake. That can reduce braking power and increase the risk of a crash.
