NHTSA Safety Notification 20V146000 reports the brake light in the recalled Motorcycles may flash instead of remain steady during emergency braking.

According to the NHTSA, flashing brake lights can cause confusion to other drivers on the road, increasing the risk of a crash.

BMW will notify registered owners, and dealers will reprogram the emergency stop signal function, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 4, 2020. Owners may contact BMW Customer Service toll-free at 1-800-525-7417 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”).
