Sept. 21, 2012—Zero Motorcycles recalled 2012 DS and S motorcycles. These motorcycles are equipped with a motor-encoder position signal that might drift during extended use of the motorcycle. If the signal drifts, the motor controller might shut off and result in the motorcycle’s loss of power. A loss of power could lead to a crash and a potential injury or death.
Zero will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the motorcycle’s motor controller free. The safety recall is expected to begin Sept. 24, 2012.
Owners may call Zero at 888/786-9376. Owners also may call National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888/327-4236 or go to safercar.gov.
