The NHTSA campaign has number 13V310000 and claims that at least 1,083 motorcycles are potentially affected by the safety issue detected. It's again the ABS which might fail and cause the bikes to lose their anti-lock functionality.

With the ABS no longer functional, the riders may lock their front and/or rear wheels and skid, and this increases the risks of a crash, personal injury and property damage. The recall is expected to begin around August 6, as Kawasaki said they will contact the customers and the dealers will be replacing the affected ABD pumps for free.

The affected motorcycles have model number EX300BDFAL and were manufactured August 16, 2012 through April 2, 2013. In case the Ninja 300, Suzuki Hayabusa and Honda CTX700 machines have the same provider for their ABS components, we believe that manufacturer will have to answer a lot of questions very soon...
