BMW Issues Stop Sale Notice




BMW Issues Stop Sale Notice



Just yesterday, BMW directed its North American dealers to stop the sale of all new and used motorcycles. The directive only effects motorcycles using internal combustion engines. BMW electric motorcycles are not impacted by the order.

BMW stated that, “This temporary stop sale is not safety related and BMW owners may continue to ride their motorcycles as normal.” The fact that the order is not related to safety and does not impact electric motorcycles has led to much speculation. One possible reason for the move by BMW could be emissions related. The focus on both new and used motorcycles hints that is a long-standing issue BMW is trying to address.

It’s unclear how this order will impact BMW owners who may face recalls, or other maintenance situations. Regardless of the “temporary” status, being that this information focuses on “internal combustion engines” and offers electric motorcycles as a replacement, it certainly has our attention. The Motorcycle Riders Foundation will track this developing story and update you as the more information becomes available.
