He bought the motorcycle in May, but it did not pass a road test, Brazil’s TV Globo reported.
Before entering surgery Wednesday, Krupp told his attorney, William Peña, that the motorcycle’s brakes failed as he approached Kardim.

But Krupp is said to have been speeding, exceeding 90mph, before hitting the teenager.
Security cameras located in several businesses on Lúcio Costa Avenue showed speeding in the left lane.
