Motorcycle maker Kawasaki recently said it will be recalling 11,097 motorcycles that were affected by an electrical issue, according to a report released on Friday, August 9.
The recall affects 2013 models of the Ninja 300 and is due to a problem connected to the wrong setting of the Electrical Control Unit (ECU), according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The electrical problem can cause the motorcycle engine to stop if the motorcyclist reduces speed, causing the motorcycle to stall.
The problem will be resolved by the manufacturer for no cost starting this August. The recall also includes 300 ABS bikes made from July 2012 to April 2013.
Sustaining injuries from an accident caused by a defective motorcycle can have extensive repercussions. In such a situation, however, you may be able to pursue justice and compensation from the negligent manufacturer.
