Kawasaki Teryx4 Off-Road Vehicle Recall Issued Due to Injury Risk
Kawasaki is recalling about 11,000 off-road vehicles after multiple complaints were received involving debris breaking through the floor boards, posing a serious injury risk for riders.
A Kawasaki Teryx 750 4×4 recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on July 30, after at least four consumer complaints indicated that sticks and other off-road debris were able to puncture the floorboards.
At least two of the incidents resulted in riders suffering injuries to their feet and thighs.

Riders are more prone to risk when using the vehicles off-road due to weak and vulnerable floor boards, the CPSC concluded. The federal safety regulators indicate that the floor boards may not withstand the impact of sticks or other solid objects, allowing the debris to protrude into the foot rest area.
The recall includes 2012 and 2013 Kawasaki Teryx 750 4×4 recreational off-road vehicles designed with four-wheel drive capability. The vehicles were sold in three styles: non-EPS, EPS, and EPS LE. The vehicles are equipped with automobile style controls, side-by-side seating in the front and back to hold four people, four doors, a roll bar, and a cargo bed. The 2012 models were sold in the colors blue, camouflage, green, red, and yellow where the 2013 models were sold in black, camouflage, green, red, white, and yellow. All models have the “Teryx4” printed on the driver’s side of the hood.
The vehicles were manufactured in the United States under Kawasaki Motors Corp., of Irvine, California where they were sold at Kawasaki dealers nationwide from October 2011 through July 2014 for about $13,400.
The CPSC recommends that customers stop using the recalled vehicle models immediately and contact Kawasaki at 866-802-9381 or visit them online at www.kawasaki.com to schedule a free repair to install new floor board guards.
