Harley riders to sue factory claiming the Twin Cam 103 is defectively manufactured

Two Harley-Davidson riders in Southern California (Michael Berke and Wolfgang Costello) have filed a complaint against Harley-Davidson in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California alleging that the Twin Cam 103 can burn riders.

According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that they suffered damages from purchasing a motorcycle equipped with a Twin Cam 103 engine. The plaintiffs hold that Harley-Davidson Motor Co. Group LLC and Harley-Davidson Motor Co. Inc. failed to warn that the engines are defectively designed and emit high heat, which can burn riders, and shorten the life of the engine.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek an injunction against the defendants, ordering them to repair or replace the Twin Cam 103 engines, cover all legal fees and pay any other relief that Court rules for. They are represented by lawyers from Zimmerman Reed LLP in Manhattan Beach, Boucher LLP in Woodland Hills and Owen Patterson & Owen in Valencia.
