For reasons that have not been revealed, Kawasaki has placed the new ZX-10R on a technical hold.
Bikes currently in dealers cannot be sold and bikes already delivered are being taken back from buyers for a full refund.
The reason for this drastic measure has not been revealed other than what was stated in the official press release.
According to the press release, "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."
Unsold units will be returned to Kawasaki warehouses in their respective markets and redistributed once the company is "100 percent confident they reflect company standards for this highly technical, race-bred machine."
Owners must return machines already delivered for a refund and will be first in line to be offered new machines for purchase once the technical hold has been lifted.
The technical hold affects units worldwide.
