PhotoArcimoto is recalling 18 model year 2019 FUV motorcycles.

A software error may cause communication between inverters to time out, possibly resulting in an unexpected battery shut down.

An unexpected battery shutdown, could cause the motorcycle to lose power immediately, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Arcimoto will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the inverter software/ firmware free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners may contact Arcimoto customer service at (541) 683-6293.
