Zero Motorcycles is recalling 268 of its electric motorcycles due a faulty the front caliper mounting bolts, Auto Blog reports.
The recall affects 2011 and 2012 S and DS motorcycles.
The front caliper mounting bolts are susceptible to corrosion, which could lead to their cracking and possible fracture, according to a statement issued by U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
“If a front caliper bolt fractures, the caliper may come loose and interfere with the rotation of the front wheel. This could cause the front wheel to stop suddenly, increasing the risk of a crash,” the statement said.
The company will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front caliper bolts.
The recall is expected to begin mid-August 2013.
