Kawasaki Recalling Z125 Pro for Shock Issue

Got yourself a new Kawasaki Z125 Pro and joined the 125cc bike scene along with Honda Grom riders? Good for you, because these are awesome little bikes, but you might have to return it to the dealer soon to get your suspension fixed.

The brand new Kawasaki Z125 Pro is in production for less than a year, and the bike maker has already issued a recall for some 1,282 models in the US to fix an issue with the shock absorber.

As the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration informs, Z125 units made between February 4, 2016, and June 7, 2016, have been fitted with shock absorbers that may leak oil.

This translates into a loss of function which may affect the motorcycle’s handling, especially in off-road situations, where some of the owners like to hurdle these tiny machines. From here, you can easily imagine what happens when a bike with its suspension broken gets to be ridden in the wild.

Kawasaki will notify Z125 Pro owners soon and will instruct them to take their rides to the nearest dealership where technicians will replace the affected shock absorbers free of charge. If you have more questions, you may contact Kawasaki’s customer service at (866) 802-9381 indicating recall number MC16-04.

Introduced earlier this year at a lower price than the Grom trendsetter, the Kawasaki Z125 Pro is as much an option as a first bike as it is a machine used for strolling around town. The bike’s small dimensions make it very easy to flick around and filter through traffic while offering a great mileage and a distinct thumper soundtrack.

As the name suggests, power comes from a 125cc, fuel-injected, 2-valve, air-cooled single-cylinder, making just enough power to take two passengers... considering they are some slender teenagers.
