Harley Davidson issued a recall for about 57,000 motorcycles. According to the motorcycle recall information, the oil line may loosen, which may spew oil into the path of the rear tire, possibly causing accidents. The motorcycles affected in the recall include the 2017 Electra Glide Ultra Classic, Police Electra Glide, Police Road King, Road King, Road King Special, Street Glide, Road Glide, and Road Glide Special. Apparently, the clamp on the engine oil cooler line may have been incorrectly installed, say Harley Davidson representatives. So far, nearly 10 cases of the oil lines loosening and coming apart have been reported in the motorcycle recall. Two car crashes and a minor injury have also been reported. Dealers will fix the problem if necessary at no charge to consumers.

Companies have a responsibility to ensure that the vehicles they manufacture are free from defects, so that drivers and their passengers remain safe while traveling in their vehicles.
