Kawasaki now Recalling Teryx4 Recreational Off-Highway Vehicles due to Potential Injury Hazard

Kawasaki is recalling the 2012 and 2013 Kawasaki Teryx4 750 4×4 recreational off-highway vehicles.  The vehicles floor boards can allow a stick or other debris to break through and protrude into the foot rest, potentially posing as an injury hazard to the driver and the front passenger.

The four-wheel drive vehicles have automobile-style controls, side-by-side seating for four people, four doors, a roll bar with hand holds and a cargo bed. The 2012 and 2013 models come in three different styles: non-EPS, EPS and EPS LE.  The LE style has a roof and aluminum wheels. The 2012 models were sold in the colors blue, camouflage, green, red and yellow. The 2013 models were sold in the colors black, camouflage, green, red, white and yellow. The model name “Teryx4” is on the driver’s side of the hood. For all colors of the EPS model except camouflage, “EPS” appears on the driver and passenger side cowling near the top front corner of the doors. On the EPS LE, “EPS” appears on the driver and passenger side cowling near top front corner of the doors and “LE” appears on the hood on the driver’s side.

Kawasaki has received a total of four incidents of debris breaking through the floor boards, including two injuries to the riders’ toes and thighs.  If you have these off-road vehicles, immediately stop using them and contact their authorized Kawasaki dealer to schedule a free repair.  This free repair will consist of the installation of floor board guards.
