Multiple news agencies have been reporting that certain motorcycles have been recalled over the possibility a crash could occur if the vehicle takes a longer distance to stop once the rider applies the brakes.
The official recall announcement issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has indicated this recall was issued by the vehicle manufacturer Qingqi Group Motorcycle CO, LTD and its American counterpart Zap USA following a discovery that all units of the 2008 Zap Xebra motorcycles manufactured between January 1st, 2008 and December 31st, 2008 have failed to comply with federal braking requirements.
According to the federal agency, these motorcycles were equipped with brakes that take longer distances to stop due to an electronic issue that should be promptly repaired. Although the problem with these motorcycles’ braking systems hasn’t been disclosed, the federal agency has urged consumers to respond to this recall immediately.
The company has stated through the official recall announcement published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that all recalled motorcycle owners are being notified. Although a notification schedule has not yet been released, recalled motorcycle owners are encouraged to contact the manufacturer if they have any questions or inquiries related to this recall announcement.
Hopefully, the campaign to recall all 2008 Zap Xebra motorcycles is successful. The personal injury lawyers in our firm would be devastated to learn that preventable accidents associated with this recalled motorcycle model were reported.
