2012 Zero Motorcycles Recall: 218 Models Recalled for Potential Short & Fire

2012 Zero Motorcycles Recall

Zero Motorcycles has recalled all 2012 Zero S, Zero DS, and Zero DSP (Police) motorcycles due to possible electrical issues that may cause a fire.

The recall affects 218 units. Zero says the cell pouches in the electric motorcycle battery packs may wear from contact with the holders, allowing humidity to enter the pouch and cause an electrical short within the battery. A short may increase the risk of a fire.
