Zero Motorcycles is recalling several of its electric motorcycle models for issues with their anti-lock braking system (ABS) hydraulic control units (HCU). The recall affects 61 units from the Zero S, DS, and FXS model lineup.
According to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the wrong vehicle model information was loaded into the HCU on the affected machines, meaning that the ABS settings on those motorcycle were not the correct ones for that particular bike.
Luckily for Zero owners, the solution is a quick reconfiguration of the HCU, however some units may need to be replaced. This recall is expected to start next week, on March 20th, 2017.
Concerned Zero owners may contact Zero Motorcycles’ customer service at 1-888-841-8085, and reference recall number SV-ZMC-017-363. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
