Last week, the Consumer Product Safety Commission and a motorcycle manufacturer/importer recalled 260 Husqvarna closed course or competition motorcycles. These motorcycles are red, white and black, two-wheeled and designed for off-road riding. They were manufactured in Italy and sold throughout the U.S. from October 2012 through June 2013.

The recall was issued due to a risk of malfunction of the throttle cable, potentially causing a rider to lose control and crash. Roughly 260 motorcycles were recalled. The models involved in the recall include:

  • CR125,
  • WR125,
  • WR250, and
  • WR300.

While no injuries have been reported thus far, it is crucial for anyone who owns one of the recalled bikes to contact the manufacturer to obtain a free repair. Doing so can prevent a motorcycle crash and perhaps save a life. Owners and riders can call Husqvarna Motorcycles at 888.985.6090.

Motorcycle Accidents & Product Liability Claims

While most motorcycle accident cases do not involve product liability claims, there are many instances when a such a claim will be valid and also necessary to ensure the rider receives fair compensation for his or her injuries. Whether it is due to a defective part or a manufacturing defect, motorcycle accident product liability cases are very complex and will require investigation and analysis by an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer.
