Brompton, with CPSC, recalls some electric bikes over firmware issue

Published April 21, 2021

WASHINGTON (BRAIN) — Brompton, which in March announced a recall independently, is now working with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to conduct a recall of 600 bikes sold in the U.S. 

The company is recalling some of its e-bikes because a firmware problem can cause the motor to keep powering the bike when the rider is not pedaling. According to the CPSC, the company has received one report of this happening and there were no injuries reported.  

The recall affects bikes that were manufactured, or had firmware updates, between May 2020 and February 2021.

The bikes were sold at the Brompton Junction Store in New York and by authorized Brompton Electric dealers nationwide from June 2020 through March 2021 for between $3,500 and $3,800.

Consumers are told to visit to check if their bike is affected, and for full information on how to update their firmware.
