There are federal and state lemon laws in place that can protect you in the event that your motorcycle does not function as you expected under its warranty. The federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act protects consumers who have purchased defective products including motorcycles.
The Magnuson-Moss law covers numerous types of products with a value greater than $10 and enables people to take legal action in the event that their rights as consumers were violated.
Many state lemon laws, however, are limited to trucks, cars, SUVs, and other four-wheeled vehicles, making it challenging for someone who has purchased a defective bike that compromises their investment value and safety. Consumers in states that do not have specific lemon laws covering motorcycles could pursue cases under the federal lemon law.
