430K faulty Harley-Davidson motorcycles under investigation

On July 6, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened an investigation into a braking issue that could affect 430,000 Harley-Davidson motorcycles, according to the Office of Defects Investigation (ODI).

ABS modules in some 2008 through 2011 Harley-Davidson motorcycle models may fail to work properly because they are liable to corrode. The ODI received 43 complaints of brake failure, including three crashes and two injuries. The NHTSA explained that the brake fluid could absorb excess moisture over time, resulting in the brake calipers failing to function. Although the NHTSA noted that bikers who complained about the problem could have failed to maintain their brake fluid every two years, the sudden brake failure is still cause for serious concern.

The Fort Walton Beach attorneys at the The Bruner Law Firm represent motorcyclists who sustained injuries in accidents. We strongly believe that motorcycle riders should receive fair compensation if negligent parties are liable.
