The most adorable motorcycle in Kawasaki’s lineup is getting a recall, as 9,914 units of the Z125 Pro and Z125 Pro KRT Edition motorcycles are being recalled for a faulty ECU setting.
According to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA), the electronic control unit (ECU) may have an improper setting (ignition timing) for the fuel injection system, which would allow the engine to stall.
Affecting both 2017 and 2018 models of the Z125 Pro line, this recall touches every unit of the pint-sized motorcycle that Kawasaki has created thus far. Kawasaki says that the issue occurs during starting and stop, with small throttle inputs.
As such, Kawasaki will notify affected owners, and Kawasaki dealers will replace the ECU, free of charge. Kawasaki Motors Corp., USA has not yet provided a notification schedule for this recall, but concerned Z125 Pro owners may contact Kawasaki customer service at 1-866-802-9381.
As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov
