Zero Motorcycles Recalled Due to Crash Hazard

Comments Off

About 200 Zero X and Zero MX Off-Road Motorcyles from the Model Year 2009 have been recalled because the throttle can get stuck in the open position or get disconnected. This can cause the motorcycle to go to full power when in the "Easy" or "0-25" mode without warning. This is extremely dangerous to the rider, as they can loose control and become injured. Although there have only been three reports of unexpected acceleration and only one case of minor injuries, this defect clearly has the potential to cause serious damage to a rider or bystanders. If you have a zero off road motorcycle, check for your model number here to determine if your motorcycle has been recalled. Stop using a recalled motorcycle immediately and contact Zero Motorcycles to schedule a free repair.
