Written By: Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, Ruffo & Giuffra LLP
After a March 2011 recall of 4,300 Baja Sports Dirt Bikes, bikes are being recalled again due to a fuel tank leak posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers. The Baja Inc. Dirt Bikes were manufactured in China; imported by Baja Inc. d/b/a Baja Motorsports of Anderson, South Carolina; and sold to motor sports stores nationwide between December 2010 and January 2012.
To date, Baja has received 16 reports from leaking fuel (10 after the March 2011 recall announcement). The recall involves all model DR50 and DR70 Baja dirt bikes that bear a VIN beginning with "L98" and the letter "B" as the 10th character of the VIN.
