Harley-Davidson Lawsuit for Engine Heat

Harley-Davidson in court for defective products class action lawsuit. Filed by a group of Harley-Davidson owners in California, USA who allege their motorcycles were defectively designed.

The class action lawsuit claims that the Harley-Davidson engines run so hot that they pose a constant danger to riders in that the engines cause burns and are therefore hot fit for their intended use.

The complaint alleges that since 1999, Twin Cam 88, 96, 103 and 110 cubic inch engines in Harley-Davidson motorcycle produce severe, excessive heat causing clothing to catch on fire, burn injuries and the danger of burn injury to riders and passengers as well as overheating causing premature engine wear and in models manufactured after 2006, transmission failure.

Although Harley-Davidson asked the Eastern District of California (USA) court to throw out the claims under state law, a U.S. District Judge sided with the Harley Davidson owners. The recent ruling allows the case to move forward, and Harley-Davidson will now face Class Action Certification process at the end of the month.
