“Beam has been made aware that a number of its e-scooters were damaged by a fire that took place in front of KLCC yesterday.

“We express our deepest sympathies with the owners of the other private motorcycles that were damaged by the fire. We applaud the authorities for their quick response to contain the fire, preventing it from spreading and causing further damage.” It continued.
The company said safety was its utmost priority and the e-scooters in its fleet feature aircraft-grade aluminium to ensure durability, while the batteries installed follow international safety certifications to ensure the highest standards of safety. The JBPM has yet to reveal the true cause of the fire.
