132 units of the Kawasaki Z900 recalled over faulty tie-rod bracket for the rear suspension.
Kawasaki has issued a voluntary recall for the Z900 in India. Reason being that the tie-rod bracket for the rear suspension could be faulty in some models. In case the rear suspension bottoms out, the holes in the tie-rod frame mounts could possibly be damaged, which in turn could cause the rear suspension to stop functioning altogether.
The company will inspect the tie-rod brackets and replace them if necessary. In case, the Kawasaki personnel consider that even the frame of the tie-rod bracket should be changed, then that will be replaced as well. All repairs and replacements will be done free of cost. The Japanese automaker has reached out to customers with the affected motorcycles and has sent out a circular to all the service centres sharing a few VINs (Vehicle Identification Numbers) which will make it easy for customers to find out whether their motorcycle has been affected or not.
The 132 Z900s affected, belong to a particular series of motorcycles manufactured in Thailand and brought to India via the CBU (Completely Built Unit) route. The motorcycle was launched earlier this year replacing the Z800. The non-ABS variant is priced at Rs. 7.68 lakhs while the ABS variant retails at Rs. 9 lakhs (both prices, ex-showroom, Delhi).
