Yamaha Motor India on Thursday issued a recall for over 13,000 units of Yamaha FZ 25 and Yamaha Fazer 25 motorcycles in a bid to fix the headcover bolt loosening.
In a statement, the Japanese two-wheeler maker stated that this is a precautionary recall to address an issue related to the headcover bolt loosening in 12,620 units of FZ 25 and 728 units of Fazer 25 motorcycles.
“The affected motorcycles were manufactured from June 2019. All the recalled motorcycles will be repaired free of cost at any of the Yamaha authorized dealers and the owners will be contacted individually,” the company added.
The Japanese two-wheeler maker has further stated that it is working closely with the dealer partners to ensure the repair experience is as convenient and efficient as possible.
It is worth mentioning here that the owners of Yamaha FZ 25 and Fazer 25 motorcycles can whether their bike is eligible for this recall or not by visiting the company's official website.
This is not the first time that these two motorcycles have been recalled in India. Back in January last year, the two-wheeler maker issued a recall for 23,897 units for the very same issue, related to head cover bolt loosening.
Both the Yamaha FZ 25 and Fazer 25 are equipped with a 249 cc, oil-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces 20.6 bhp at 8000 rpm and 20 Nm of peak torque at 6000 rpm. The engine of both the motorcycles is mated to a 5-speed transmission.
Suspension duties on both the bikes are handled by telescopic forks upfront and a monoshock setup at the rear. Whereas, braking duties are handled by a 282 mm disc brake with 2 pot caliper at the front and 220 mm disc brake with single pot caliper at rear, equipped with dual-channel ABS on both bikes.
