Well Kawasaki called me yesterday. I own one (2011 ZX10R) I am in the U.S.
They want to buy my bike back ( full refund ) or, ----- I can ride it / keep it and get a new motor when the motor can be built and shipped to the closest dealer for an exchange. BUT...... what?, wait, there is MORE! ...... And all I have to do is keep the bike UNDER 6000 RPM's "at all times" if I wa...nt to keep it! When I asked " so if I go over 6000 rpms is the motor going to blow up and cut my legs off? The Kawasaki guy said "this is not, NOT a safety issue.Kawasaki said an email is coming to all the purchasers shortly. Kawasaki also said less than 2 dozen people took delivery before the TECH HOLD nationwide.I think I want them to send me a new motor that I can keep in my garage so when the motor on the NEW 2011 ZX10R does go KABLAMMY.... I have a spare. So no fix just give the bike back or keep it and never go over 6000 rpm. WOW! AND... AND NO EXPLINATION of what is wrong with the motor! I don't like how this is turning out.
