That year and model a 2018 gsx250r for a faulty headlight and that's what caused the accident and I was severely injured and the potential buyer of the motorcycle took off. Suzuki Motor co. Refused any repairs or compensation.

You could sue Suzuki but you would also have to include the driver because Suzuki will say it was the drivers fault. You really should sit down with a personal injury attorney and explore your options. And don't wait because there are time limits on when you take action.

You most likely will have to give them back the vehicle unless you can negotiate something with them.. but they most likely just want the vehicle back. Whatever you do - do NOT drive it unless you have proper insurance on the vehicle.

This would be a VERY hard path for you without an attorney. You should talk to some local attorneys right away. Don't wait because actions against government actors have very short and strict Statutes of Limitations. Meaning if you wait you cannot thereafter pursue them.
