WASHINGTON, D.C. - Kawasaki is recalling about 11,000 Teryx4 vehicles from the 2012 and 2013 model years, because the floor boards won't protect passengers from sticks or other debris that can break through and protrude into the foot rest area.

Involved are Teryx4 750 4x4s that were sold by Kawasaki dealers from October 2011 through July 2014, according to the announcement by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Kawasaki told CPSC that it has received four reports of debris breaking through the floor boards of the vehicles, and reports of two injuries to riders' toes and thighs.

The OEM is advising customers to immediately stop using the recalled vehicles and contact their Kawasaki dealer, which will install floor board guards at no charge.
