Specialized says that about 2,500 battery packs installed on certain Turbo Levo and Kenevo mountain bikes may allow water to leak inside, which could cause a short-circuit leading to fire and/or a burn hazard. Owners are advised to discontinue use immediately and contact Specialized by phone (800-772-4423) or email ([email protected]) for repair. Do not charge the battery packs or expose them to wet conditions.
This recall involves Specialized 1st generation 2016-2018 model year Turbo Levo FSR, 2018-2021 model year Turbo Levo HT, and 2018-2019 model year Turbo Kenevo FSR electric mountain bikes with Specialized M1 battery packs that came as original equipment on the bikes, or Specialized M1 battery packs that were sold as aftermarket equipment for use with the bikes. Turbo Levo, Turbo Levo HT, or Turbo Kenevo FSR are printed on the bicycle’s top tube.
Specialized says the battery packs can be identified by part number and made date, which is printed on the battery. Note that the battery must be removed from the frame to view the numbers. The following batteries are included:
