Recall: Brammo Empulse R

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Brammo is recalling certain units of its new electric street bike, the Brammo Empulse R. Specifically affecting units made between February 22, 2013, through March 29, 2013 (five units in total), the recall comes about after a test unit showed that some machines had a high current cable attached to the motor controller incorrectly, which could cause an electrical short.

The short could cause a complete loss of power while riding, or even a fire, hence the need for the recall with the NHTSA. Brammo will notify affected owners, and technicians will inspect the cable at the motor controller, and correct its installation if needed.

Concerned Empulse R owners can contact Brammo at 1-541-482-9555, and as always the NHTSA is available at 1-888-327-4236 and
