The standard warranty covers parts, standard shipping and labor for all major components, defined herein as including the motor, motor controller, power pack, frame, swing arm, fork, rear shock, brake assemblies, wheels, and electrical sub-assemblies. This warranty covers Zero manufactured accessories installed at the time of purchase.

Wheels are excluded from this standard warranty on off-road bikes once they have been ridden. This standard warranty excludes aftermarket accessory kits which may be subject to their own warranties. This standard warranty excludes parts and components damaged by use or operation under abnormal circumstances or contrary to the requirements described in the owner’s manual, or damaged by improper use or accidents.
Racing or competitive use voids this warranty.
Modifications or alterations to major components of the manufacturer’s original product or its subcomponents void all warranties.

The purchaser acknowledges that there is an inherent risk in the operation of Zero motorcycles and all other Zero Motorcycles Inc. products, and herewith assumes liability for any injury arising from all operation of any Zero Motorcycles Inc. product. The original registered owner or subsequent registered transferee as documented on the Zero motorcycle warranty registration form will indemnify and hold Zero Motorcycles Inc. harmless and take full responsibility for conveying all safety warnings, instructions and limited warranty if the unit is sold, loaned or otherwise transferred to other persons, and will indemnify Zero Motorcycles Inc. from any claims against it for original owner’s failure to do so. Zero Motorcycles Inc. does not assume or authorize anyone to assume for them any other obligation.
