The Milwaukee Business Journal (12/10) reported, “Harley-Davidson Inc. is recalling 111,569 motorcycles manufactured from June 6, 2008, through Nov. 19, 2009, because of a threat of gasoline leaking in the event of a frontal collision. The recall affects some 2009 and 2010 touring bikes, including CVO Touring and Trike products, according to information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.” The federal agency “said the motorcycles’ front fuel tank mounts may distort as a result of a front-end crash, creating the potential for fuel to leak and ignite after a crash.”
According to the recall, dealers will make repairs to the motorcycles free-of-charge. Consumer can call Harley-Davidson at (414) 343-4056 for more information.
This defect is obviously extremely dangerous. If you own a motorcycle that ha been recalled, please do not use it again until it has been properly repaired or replaced. I represent many victims of automobile defects, and the consequences of those defects can be devastating.
Please be safe.
