According to the reports, Kawasaki Motors Private Ltd has issued a mass recall of all its Ninja 300 motorcycles that have been manufactured using locally sourced components between August 16, 2018 - March 12, 2019. The recall has been issued by the Kawasaki officials considering the issue with the front brake master cylinder made by Endurance. The inadequate hardness of the lip seal of the front brake can make it peel off any second resulting in consecutive brake failure. All the Kawasaki dealerships have started contacting the Ninja 300 owners for replacing the faulty master cylinder with a new one. The changes made to the motorcycle will be free of charge. A total of 1358 units of Kawasaki Ninja 300 have been recalled as of yet.
