Brompton Electric H2L review
In March 2021, Brompton issued a voluntary recall on any of its electric bikes that were manufactured, or had a firmware update, between May 2020 and February 2021.
This is because a firmware fault that under specific circumstances could lead to an electrical system failure. This could cause the bike to continue to accelerate when the rider isn't pedaling.
If you've purchased this bike between May 2020 and February 2021 it will likely require a firmware update to fix the issue, which Brompton is offering free of charge at all Brompton Electric retailers.
