ZERO MOTORCYCLES is recalling certain 2012 models because insufficient weatherproofing may cause a short circuit of the battery management system when subjected to wet conditions, resulting in the motorcycle inadvertently losing power.

The potential number of units affected is 254. The recall involves the following 2012 models:

  • Zero DS
  • Zero S
  • Zero X
  • Zero XU
  • Zero XU-LSM

Zero will notify owners, and dealers will repair the motorcycles for free. The recall is expected to begin on or about July 16.

This is the second recall announced in the last week by the electric motorcycle manufacturer. Click here to read about another recent Zero recall for a faulty brake light switch.
