Motorcycle Recall - Zero Recall

By Walter F. Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  17V436000
Component:  Exterior Lighting
Manufacturer:  Zero Motorcycles Inc.
Recall Date: 07/10/2017
Potential Number of Units Affected: 10
Defect Summary:
Zero Motorcycles Inc. (Zero) is recalling certain 2017 S ZF6.5, S ZF13.0, DSP ZF13.0, and SR ZF13.0 motorcycles. In the event that a turn signal stops working, the turn signal flasher may not change its flash rate to alert the operator. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
Consequence Summary:
If motorcycle is operated without knowing that a turn signal is not working, there would be an increased risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Zero will notify owners and dealers will test the motorcycle's flasher, replacing it as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on, or before July 28, 2017. Owners may contact Zero customer service at 1-888-841-8085. Zero's number for the recall is SV-ZMC-017-369.
