A Douglas County jury awarded $12.5 million to a couple for injuries the husband suffered when his Suzuki motorcycle crashed because of what the plaintiffs claimed was the failure of a brake assembly under a recall notice.

According to plaintiffs lawyers and court filings, Suzuki deliberately delayed announcing the 2013 recall of its GSX-R1000 models because the company “did not want this recall to interfere with their spring and summer selling season,” when most motorcycles are sold.
