Additional information:

Among the 102 recalls the NHTSA has announced this December comes news of the following:

Piaggio Group Americas Inc. (“Piaggio”) has recalled an estimated 1,856 model year 2016-2017 Aprilia RSV4 1000 Motorcycles (including RR, Factory Superpole, and RF Superpole), and 2017 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 motorcycles (including RR and Factory Superpole). These motorcycles are equipped with Brembo front brake master cylinders that may fail. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 122, “Motorcycle Brake Systems.”

According to the NHTSA, if the front brake master cylinder fails, the loss of front braking ability can increase the risk of a crash.

What to do next? Aprilia will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the front brake master cylinder piston, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 15, 2018. Owners may contact Aprilia customer service at 1-212-380-4433.
