India Yamaha Recalls FZ 25 And Fazer Due To Bolt Loosening
India Yamaha Motor has declared that the company will be calling back 23,897 units of its newly launched quarter liter twin bikes, Yamaha FZ 25 and Yamaha Fazer 25 in the country. Both have been recalled for rectifying an issue connected to head cover bolt loosening. Yamaha, the Japanese bike maker has stated that the recall exercise will begin with immediate effect and will cover the motorcycles that were manufactured from January 2017. This includes almost all motorbikes that were sold since the launch of the FZ 25 in January last year. The recall will cover 21,640 units of FZ 25 bikes and 2257 units of Fazer 25 bikes.
The bike major has recalled the bikes as a preventive recall and did not issued any statement of any incidents in this matter. Further, the company said in a statement that these affected motorcycles will be repaired free of cost at any of the authorized dealers and the owners will be contacted individually. Yamaha is also working closely with its authorized dealers to confirm that the repair is taking place in a convenient and efficient manner as possible. They further stated that if anyone owns the FZ or Fazer 25, they can also contact their dealer to see if the bike is part of the recall or not.
The Yamaha FZ 25 bike was announced in the market last year and has been an effective model for the motorcycle major. It is built on the FZ legacy in India together with the beefier styling, powerful engine and impressive ride ability, specifically within the city. The Yamaha Fazer 25 bike, on the other hand, is built on the same components as the FZ 25 bike, but it has been further designed as a sports bike and comes with a complete sports look.
