Kawasaki Motors Australia has recalled the 2016 model Ninja ZX-10R sports bike over a steering damper issue which could potentially cause an accident.
The ACCC recall notice says the steering damper bracket mounting bolts could break due to over tightening during assembly.
“The bracket may separate from the frame which could cause interference with the steering creating the potential for an accident,” it says.
