Kawasaki is recalling all units of its 2011 Ninja ZX-10R in both ABS and non-ABS variants for an inspection of the bike's wiring harness.
The news may impact how much motorcyclists are charged for their bike insurance.
The company issued the recall after it was found that the main wiring harness can rub against the rear of the frame in some machines. This can damage the wiring loom in some cases.
Although no machines in the UK have been reported to have wiring damage caused by the flaw, Kawasaki initiated a recall as a precautionary measure and is sending letters to all registered owners of 2011 Ninja ZX-10R units.
The inspection by an official Kawasaki dealer will take 20 minutes, and the harness will be re-routed, repaired or replaced, for free.
This is the third recall issued by the manufacturer in two months.
Last month, the company recalled its Z1000 and ER-6f.
