The Japanese two-wheeler maker says that this is a precautionary recall to address an issue related to the head cover bolt loosening in 12,620 units of FZ 25 and 728 units of Fazer 25 motorcycles. The affected motorcycles were manufactured from June 2019 this year, they will be repaired free of cost at any of the Yamaha authorized dealers and the owners will be contacted individually.

The engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission on both bikes. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks up front and a monoshock setup at the rear. 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.
