In some states, if any liability is proven on motorcyclist’ side, it may lessen the amount of settlement. In some cases, the motorcyclist’s conduct may not be able to get any sum as recovery from the defendant.

- Motorcycles or parts manufactured in a defective manner. This type of claim regards motorcycles or motorcycle parts that have been inappropriately assembled in some way. It may be the outcome of an inaccuracy at the manufacturing capacity wherever the motorcycle or part was assembled, or an issue that arises in shipping or in store room.
- Motorcycles with an unfairly unsafe design. This type of claims regards motorcycles or parts that, though manufactured as it should be, have an unfairly unsafe design that gives rise to injury or further damages.
In a few cases, the substandard motorcycle or part is required for safety update. Safety update may be made by the manufacturer or by the National Highway Authority. In the time of a safety update, the manufacturer has to take particular measures to give notices to motorcycle owners and then make available an update – typically a repair, redemption, or substitution of the vehicle.
