Zero has identified a problem with its 2017 S, DS and FXS models, and although the issue spans three different model ranges, the overall number of affected vehicles is relatively low at only 61 units total in North America. According to the report filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Hydraulic Control Unit that works in conjunction with the ABS may have been programmed with the wrong vehicle information. This would cause potential loss of control if the HCU meters the level of ABS intervention based on erroneous info. In short, the ABS makes you more likely to have a wreck, not less. Ironic? I’ll not climb on my soapbox about rider crutches, but just point out that this is exactly what I mean when I talk about someone taking your crutch and beating you with it. ’Nuff said.
