Incorrect Brake Hoses Could Cause Venice Motorcyclists Harm

  • Story Highlights:

Floridians are all about motorcycles. According to Statista, it was estimated that there were 62,000 registered units in the Sunshine State in 2020. However, it is 2022, so that number has probably increased by now. The point is that there are motorcycles everywhere in Florida, even right here in Venice. As such, people can look outside on side-streets or highways and see bikes at almost any given time.

Are you a motorcycle owner in Venice? There's certainly nothing wrong with that if that is the case. After all, there is just something about the freedom you get from riding around on two wheels with the wind hitting against your face. You must be extra careful, though. Bikes simply don't offer the same protections as cars do, and the last thing you need is to get hurt in an accident. But not everything is on you. Vehicle operators must also do their parts to keep you safe.

Failing in either regard is not an option because that could lead to a host of injuries. For instance, if you're struck by a car, that can cause fractured and broken bones, lacerations, and road rash, but that's not all. Other typical ailments associated with motorcycle accidents include:

• Traumatic brain injury
• Burns
• Paralysis
• Loss of limbs
• Neck and back injuries

Obviously, these wounds barely even begin to scratch the surface. There are tons of different ways people can get hurt in these incidents. And, of course, nobody can forget about death. It is also possible for riders to lose their lives in motorcycle accidents. In fact, according to the FLHSMV, there were 517 motorcyclist fatalities in Florida in 2020. That's certainly a number that needs to decline. However, a decrease may not be in the cards anytime soon, especially if issues like these keep arising.

Year Model 2022 RR-S Motorcycles


Do you own a 2022 RR-S motorcycle? If so, it may be time to park it, at least for a little while. It has recently been brought to Beta USA's attention that there might be 97 of these vehicles on the roadways with a problem. It turns out that these bikes may have been fitted with improper brake hoses.

Although that might not sound like a huge deal, it can be. When motorcycles have incorrect brake lines installed, there's a chance that they can break or disconnect. Then, slowing down and stopping can become nearly impossible, increasing the risk of a crash. With no brakes, a motorcyclist could run into the rear end or side of a vehicle, sending them flying through the air and landing on the pavement.

Then again, a biker with weak brakes may hit a pedestrian or bicyclist, leaving them in critical condition. These are only a couple of scenarios that might arise because of weak brakes. So, do yourself and everybody else in Venice a favor. If you are the proud owner of a RR-S motorcycle, check with the dealer or manufacturer to see what steps need to be taken to rectify the situation. The models in question include:

• 350 RR-S
• 390 RR-S
• 430 RR-S
• 500 RR-S

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
