            The way I read it is 21 bikes that have brakes that actually work, with a caveat not for retards.

                All stock Kawasaki brakes are shit anyway and the chance of death or injury is always there.

                At least they do a recall, the Italian's would just go, "Oh, we know that can happen, for $5000 and an 18 week wait we can send you the replacement parts that need to be installed by a factory mechanic @$200/hr over 3 weeks".
                Trying to think of a wise and sincere signature quote, but the only words that leap to mind are, "TITTY SPRINKLES"

                  Standard kawasaki.
                  A lot of standard suzuki brakes aren't much better in my experience.

                  At least with brakes - most of the italian stuff comes with Brembos these days.
                  “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

                        You can’t get your feet on the ground to help either.

                              I had a need to look through the Australian Recall list yesterday for a job I’m pricing.
                              The info I got from the client was there was a recall by Honda for their CBR1000R cranks.
                              No there isn’t. Only USA.
                              I was amazed they only sent the shitty designed ones to the USA.
                              Lucky eh?
