Brammo Empulse Electric Motorcycle Recall
Brammo has recalled a handful of 2013 Empulse electric motorcycles that were built from Feb. 22 through March 29, 2013 due to the possibility of electrical shorting.
Brammo says some of the Empulse motorcycles may have a high-current cable incorrectly attached to the motor controller, which can cause electrical shorting.
Brammos says an electrical short can cause a complete loss of power while riding the motorcycle or a fire, either of which can result in a vehicle crash or personal injury.
Brammo will notify owners, and technicians will inspect the high current cable at the motor controller and correct its installation, if needed. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Customers may contact Brammo at 1-541-482-9555.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to safercar.gov.
