2015 Zero SR

Zero Motorcycles has recalled 96 of its 2015 SR, S, DS and FX electric motorcycles due to electrical issues that can cause ABS and riding lights to malfunction.

The California-based Zero says on the affected motorcycles, the DC-DC converter, which converts direct current (DC) from one voltage level to another, may not produce the correct output power.

If this occurs during a high-power demand, the anti-lock brake system (ABS) may not function properly, and the lights may temporary not work, increasing the risk of a crash.

Zero has notified owners, and dealers will inspect the DC-DC converters, replacing ones of a specific type as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on September 16, 2016. Owners may contact Zero customer service at 1-888-841-8085. Zero’s number for this recall is SV-ZMC-016-356.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
