Kawasaki recalls Z900 in India over faulty tie-rod bracket

After its recall in international markets, Japanese motorcycle maker Kawasaki has recalled the Z900 over faulty tie-rod bracket, which could lead to rear suspension failure.

The two-wheeler is priced at approximately Rs7 lakh. Kawasaki will recall 132 units falling under a specific serial number series.

On 2017 and some 2018 models of Z900 (ZR900B), the holes in the rear shock absorber tie-rod frame mounts can become elongated if the rear shock absorber bottoms out.

Kawasaki will inspect the frame and add additional bracing brackets. In rare cases the frame will need to be replaced. The inspection and bracket installation will take around 50 minutes to complete.

The replacement can be carried out at all official India Kawasaki Motor service centres in the country.
