Brompton electric folding bicycles have been issued a recall as of June 9, 2022 for risk of crashing and injury.
Around 2,230 bikes are being recalled in the United States, and around 110 were sold in Canada.
To avoid crashing and the potential for injury, you should stop riding it and get it repaired.
Why are the Brompton electric bicycles being recalled?
The bicycle has a mudguard, which is too close to the front wheel.
If something became lodged between the mudguard and the wheel, it could cause the wheel to lock.
A sudden lock like that could cause the bicycle to decelerate, which could result in a crash.
Which bicycles were issued a recall?
The bikes being recalled are the Brompton foldable electric bikes with 16 inch wheels.
Impacted products with the recall were sold in black, white, bolt lacquer, Turkish green, and white with gold.
The logo “Brompton” can be seen printed on the center tube of the bike frame.
Models recalled include Brompton Electric M2L, H2L, M6L, and H6L.
Recall: Black lights sold at Spirit Halloween pose burn risks
These model numbers can be found on the name plate on the bike on the bottom of the seat facing the rear.
If you have any of these models, stop using the bike and contact a Brompton dealer for a free repair.
This repair will replace the mudguard stay and flap to create more space and not allow objects to become lodged in between.
There have been 10 reports of crashes caused by the mudguard placement.
9 reports of injuries have been reported.
Injuries include head and facial impact, broken bones, dislocating of the shoulder, bruises, chipped teeth, and two required hospitalizations.
You can contact Brompton at 1-800-578-6785 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday regarding the recall.
