CHICAGO — Consumers have filed a class action lawsuit against the Harley-Davidson Motor Company Group over allegedly defective tire pressure monitoring sensors in the CVO Limited motorcycle.
Robert and Judith Okon filed a complaint on behalf of themselves and all others in a similar situation on Oct. 19 in Cook County Circuit Court, saying Harley-Davidson had obtained profit through distribution of a substandard product, violating the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and the Illinois Consumer Fraud Act.
Harley-Davidson allegedly failed to disclose that the tire pressure monitoring sensors were defective, and failed to effectively repair the defects, the plaintiffs said.
Consumers who had purchased Harley-Davidson motorcycles suffered economic damages due to the diminished value of their motorcycles, and the company breached their written warranty to repair any defective parts, the complaint said.
The plaintiffs requested a trial by jury and sought judgment against the defendant for damages, declaratory relief, costs and attorneys' fees. They are represented by Vincent and James DiTommaso of DiTommaso Lubin Austermuehle in Oakbrook Terrace.
