Update: Brompton Electric Bikes Recalled Over Crash, Injury Hazards
Brompton is recalling about 2,230 Brompton Electric Folding Bicycles over concerns that the mudguard is positioned too close to the front wheel which can cause the wheel to lock up leading to sudden deceleration of the bike if an object gets caught between the mudguard and front tire, posing crash and injury hazards to the rider.
The firm has received 10 reports of faulty mudguards causing the bikes to crash, resulting in nine reports of injuries, including head and facial impact, broken bones, shoulder dislocation, bruising, and chipped teeth and two reports of hospitalizations,” CPSC said.
This recall affects the Brompton Electric M2L, H2L, M6L, and H6L which are printed on the bicycles name plate, which is affixed to the bottom of the seat-post facing rearwards.
The recalled bikes were sold online and at Brompton bicycle retailers from May 2019 through March 2022 for between $3,500 and $3,800.
This recall began on June 9, 2022.
