Nearly 111,600 2010 Harley-Davidson touring models are expected to be recalled around Dec. 14, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The bikes are being recalled because the front fuel tank mounts may distort if the bike's frame is damaged in a frontal collision, causing the fuel tank to leak at a weld on a bracket. The leak could result in a fire that could injure the rider, reported the NHTSA.
The bikes were manufactured June 6, 2008-Nov. 19. Affected are the 2009-2010 models of the FLHP, FLHPE, FLHR, FLHTP, FLHR SHRINE, FLHRC, FLHT, FLHTC, FLHTCU, FLHTCU SHRINE, FLHTCU W/SC, and the 2009 models of the FLTR, FLTR3-CVO, FLTRSE3, FLHTCU4-CVO, FLHTCUSE4, FLHTCUSE5, FLHTCUTG, FLHTK. Also recalled are the 2009-2011 FLHX and the 2010 model of the FLHXXX.
