Kawasaki India witnessed a sudden surge in the sales of the Ninja 300 ever since it started manufacturing the bike in the country which allowed it to cut the price. From Rs 3.6 lakh with no ABS to Rs 2.98 lakh with ABS, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 overnight became the first choice of many people. Now, the latest news tells us that the Made in India Ninja 300 has been recalled by the company.
A total of 1,359 units of the Ninja 300 manufactured between August 16, 2018, and March 12, 2019, are affected by this recall. Here’s the description of the issue mentioned by Kawasaki, “Hardness of primary lip seal in the front brake master cylinder is insufficient. As such the primary lip seal may get pealed off when the front brake is operated. This could result in ineffective front wheel brake application on the motorcycle.”
Kawasaki dealerships will contact the owners of the affected units and notify them about the issue. The owners will have to take their Ninja 300 to the dealership to get the problem fixed by replacing the master cylinder, which will be, of course, free of cost. If you haven’t received the call yet and are troubled by this recall, you can go to this Kawasaki’s official page and find out whether your bike is affected by it or not.
