CPSC, Fisher-Price Announce Recall of Children's Riding Vehicles

In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Fisher-Price is recalling about 218,000 battery-powered Power Wheels® Harley-Davidson® motorcycles for repair. The vehicles' foot pedals, which activate the ride-ons, can stick in the "on" position. Children can be injured when the motorcycle ride-ons fail to stop and strike other objects.

Fisher-Price has received nine reports of the foot pedal on these vehicles sticking. One 3-year-old boy suffered cuts and bruises when his ride-on ran into a home.

The recalled Power Wheels Harley-Davidson ride-ons have model numbers 74290, 74293 (with a red body) and 74298 (with a black body). A "Power Wheels by Fisher-Price" logo is located on the left side of the seat on the product, and the model number is located on a label in the battery compartment. Only model numbers 74290, 74293 and 74298 are being recalled. These battery-powered ride-ons are intended for children 3 and older, and the vehicles' speed is 2.5 or 5 mph.

Toy, mass merchandise and discount stores, and Harley-Davidson dealerships sold the motorcycle ride-ons nationwide from September 1999 through August 2000 for about $190 for the red vehicle and $700 for the black vehicle.


Consumers should stop using these ride-ons immediately, and call Fisher-Price to determine if your vehicle is part of this recall. Consumers with recalled ride-ons will receive a free foot pedal repair kit. The repair can be easily completed in the home without any hardware.

Power Wheels Harley-Davidson motorcycle ride-ons that have model number 74370 (with a pink body) are not part of this recall.

Consumers should call Fisher-Price at (888) 289-9292 anytime for more information. Please be sure to have the toy motorcycle ride-on nearby.
