- Around 200 motorcyles have been affected
- Zero, S, DPS, S are part of this recall
- Company is also offering buy-back program
Zero Motorcycles has recalled around 200 motorcycles over a potential battery pack fire issue. The company is also offering buy-back program on all S, DPS and the DS modes manufactured since 2012.
The company says that the batteries are not completely sealed from humidity, making corrosion a problem. They are also designed in such a way that the individual cells are able to move around inside the battery, eventually shorting out due to chafing. Three motorcycles caught fire as a result of this issue in US and Hongkong.
The American electric-bike maker has asked all its affected customers not to ride the bikes or charge them. The company technicians will pick up the bike and fix the issue. Along with this, the company has offered to replace all the 2012 models with a brand new one.
