California Lemon Law for Motorcycles

The law in California covers motorcycles that are registered for use on the highway, similar to the coverage that applies to vehicles. There are several factors that are used to determine if your motorcycle may be considered a lemon.  These include the following:

  • The motorcycle does not align with the manufacturer’s warranty
  • The motorcycle has a substantial defect/problem that impairs its safety, ridability or value
  • The motorcycle has either been repaired at least 4 times for the same defect/problem, has been non-usable for at least 30 days or has been in repair at least 2 times for a defect/problem that can lead to serious physical harm including death

There are different types of motorcycles and unfortunately off-road types such as dirt bikes and models that are not registered for use on the highway are not covered by the law.  There are however some provisions in the Song Beverly Consumer Warranty Act which may provide protection for such motor vehicles, since they fall into the category of consumer goods.

Common Problems With Motorcycles

There are many issues that a motorcycle may have which may classify it as a possible lemon.  Here is a list of some common problems with motorcycles:

  • Brake malfunction
  • Engine malfunction and/or failure
  • Electrical system malfunction and/or failure
  • Fuel pump defects
  • Loss of total power (electrical/mechanical)
  • Manufacturer design defects
  • Steering malfunction and/or failure
  • Tire malfunction
  • Uncontrolled acceleration

Motorcycle Safety Concerns

There are many safety concerns to keep in mind when dealing with a motorcycle that may be considered a lemon.  It is always important to take any type of defect seriously, even if it appears to be minor one.  These defects can be extremely serious  and could possibly lead major injuries.  Something typical that most of us experience is the “check engine” light on a vehicle dashboard.  When it is illuminated in a vehicle, it may be something that will eventually need attention but not immediately and the vehicle is still safe to drive.  On the contrary, if this occurs on a motorcycle, you may be more in danger and it is something that will need your immediate attention to avoid any physical harm due to a possible accident.

It is easier to lose control of your motorcycle with many of the common defects that may occur to it while you are on it.  Upon losing control, it may lead to a great physical harm because you are less protected on a motorcycle than you are in a vehicle.  Unfortunately, the potential consequences of an accident are much more severe on a motorcycle.  It is extremely important that you take immediate action if you have noticed a defect in your motorcycle.

We are experienced riders and have had motorcycles for many years. My husband and I purchased a new motorcycle and were very happy at first. After a few weeks, we began to have mechanical issues with it. We were frustrated and fed up with the constant repairs needed to keep our motorcycle in working condition. We paid good money for it and had paid thousands in repairs and we were then convinced that the salesperson at the dealership took us for a ride. Scott Law Group helped us regain the money that we felt we were entitled to. Christian and his legal team were very professional and they helped us out tremendously. Highly recommended law group.
