IRVINE, Calif. (Dec. 11, 2010) — Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. is placing a technical hold on
the 2011 Ninja® ZX™-10R sportbike. The company is proactively addressing a remedy which
reflects Kawasaki’s commitment to excellence and its relationships with its highly valued
customers and dealer network.
The following actions are being initiated through the Kawasaki dealer network:
• Unsold units will be returned to KMC warehouses. The units will be redistributed
once Kawasaki is 100 percent confident they reflect company standards for this
highly technical, race-bred machine.
• Those who have taken delivery of a unit will be instructed to return the unit to the
dealership for a full refund and will be among the first to have the option of
receiving a new unit once the technical hold has been lifted.
