Issue

Issue:
On certain motorcycles, the stop lamp will flash during emergency braking. Canadian regulations require the stop lamp to stay on constantly while braking.

Safety Risk:
A flashing stop lamp could cause confusion for other drivers. This could increase the risk of a crash.

Corrective Actions:
BMW Motorrad will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your motorcycle to a dealer to update the stop lamp software, so that the stop lamp does not flash during emergency braking.
