Piaggio Australia has recalled 54 2018 ZIP 50 4T scooters over a throttle fault that could cause the scooter to slow down quickly.
The official Australian Competition and Consumer Commission recall notice says the fault could increase the “risk of an accident or injury to the rider”.
It says the throttle control cable on the Zip scooters may break and advises owner to contact their nearest authorised Piaggio dealer and arrange a time for the throttle cable to be modified or replaced free of charge.
