BMW Motorrad North America issues a “Stop Sales”

Bmw Motorrad North America has just issued a “Stop Sales” notice on all New and Used motorcycle in North America, with the exception for the CE 04. Let’s see what happened.

Bmw Motorrad North America Statement

Here is the official statement:

“BMW of North America is dedicated to providing vehicles to our customers that meet their expectations. To ensure that our vehicles are of the highest industry standards, BMW performs ongoing testing and evaluation.

Following a recent quality analysis, BMW is pursuing measures to further evaluate the material used in a component of its motorcycle evaporative system, which may not have been produced to material specifications.

As a result, BMW of North America is issuing a temporary, voluntary stop sale for all new and pre-owned BMW motorcycle models in dealer inventory, except for the CE 04.

This temporary stop sale is not safety related and BMW owners may continue to ride their motorcycles as normal.”

Our opinion

Needless to say, BMW Motorrad North America statement draw a lot of attention and, ultimately, set in motion a wave of speculation that is going to keep moving and moving – at least – until they release a new notice or some kind of update. I believe they should get into more details – to the extend they can of course, we do not expect them to release sensitive data – to make sure everybody is on board and really understand that it is not something safety related. It is well spelled out in the notice the’ve just issued but, and you all know how it is, theorists started setting the conspiracy machine in motion.

I believe – please keep in mind that this is just my opinion – that since no company wants to pay billions of dollars in fines (anyone remember what happened to VW Diesel cars?), BMW discovered that have a problem with the Evaporative System but, at the moment, they are not sure how spread the problem is. Therefore they are shutting sales down while they figure out which model is effectively showing the problem.

To all the BMW owners out there: do not worry about it, and keep enjoying your beautiful BMW Motorcycles.

To all the brothers and sisters who want a BMW, you just need to have patience, it will be sorted sooner than you think and you will finally have your dream motorcycle in your garage.
