    Too bad it wasn't a 2012 Zero, which are being recalled due to the possibility of them suffering a "thermal event" when charging. On Friday, Zero picked up my daughter 2012 9 kWh S and will be giving her a check for $6,040 in return for the bike. All 218 Zeros made during that year have been recalled and will be dismantled at the factory and (I hope) recycled.

    There is no indication that the 2011 models have a problem as they use different batteries. The EIG-brand batteries are apparently the problem with that single model year. That was the only year that Zero used EIG cells.
    Richard - Current bikes: 2018 16.6 kWh Zero S, 2016 BMW R1200RS, 2011 Royal Enfield 500, 2009 BMW F650GS, 2005 Triumph T-100 Bonneville, 2002 Yamaha FZ1 (FZS1000N) and a 1978 Honda Kick 'N Go Senior.
