2016 Kawasaki Z125 Pro EFI (3)

Recall notice number MC16-04 has been filed with the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) by Kawasaki US for the 2016 Kawasaki Z125 Pro mini-moto for a faulty rear shock absorber.

According to the filing, 1,282 units of the Z125 Pro manufactured between February 4 to June 7, 2016, may have been fitted with rear shock that may leak. The leak may cause loss of function of the absorber, thereby increasing the risk of a crash. Z125 Pro owners in the US will be notified by Kawasaki US, and can have the shock absorber replaced at a Kawasaki dealer, free-of-charge.

Also available in Malaysia, the 2016 Kawasaki Z125 Pro comes with a 125 cc, single-cylinder, four-valve SOHC air-cooled engine that produces 9.8 PS at 8,000 rpm, and 9.6 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. Fuelled by EFI, this mini-moto rolls on 12-inch wheels that – coupled with its short wheelbase – gives it quick handling.

Retailing at RM10,435 inclusive of GST, the 2016 Kawasaki Z125 Pro is targetted at the younger rider wanting a quick, small motorcycle with trendy looks. Only one colour option is available in Malaysia – Burnt Candy Orange.

We are in contact with Kawasaki Motors Malaysia to find out if any Malaysian units are affected and will post an update if necessary.
