Harley-Davidson sued over Twin Cam 103 engine

Two Los Angeles Country customers allege Harley-Davidson’s Twin Cam 103 engine is defectively designed and can burn riders, according to an article in the Northern California Record.

Plaintiffs Michael Berke and Wolfgang Costello filed a complaint on Dec. 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Harley-Davidson Motor Co.

 The two customers allege that they were injured after purchasing a motorcycle equipped with a Twin Cam 103 engine and that the “defendants did not warn that the engines are defectively designed and emit high heat, which can burn riders, and shortens the life of the engine.”
