received notice of approximately thirty - one accidents involving
injuries reportedly arising from operation of ATVs which it has manufactured since May , 1980 .
Analysis of the injury data received by Kawasaki indi
cates that some 2 / 3 of the incidents reported to the company
involved riders with either no ATV operating experience or with
only minimal operating experience . Kawasaki has not received complete information as to the experience levels of the operators
