Zero motorcycles, inc. (Zero) is recalling certain model year 2011 and 2012 S, XU, and DS motorcycles, model year 2011 MXD, and XD motorcycles and 2012 X motorcycles. The brake light switch at the front brake lever may not activate until significant brake lever travel occurs. The brake light may not activate when a moderate amount of front brake is applied. As such, motorists traveling behind the motorcycle may not be alerted when an affected motorcycle is slowing down, which could lead to a possible crash and potential injury or death to the rider. Zero will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the front brake system brake-light switch free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, July 16, 2012. Owners may contact zero motorcycles at 1-831-438-3500. Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty: 1-800-424-9153); or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
