Piaggio Group Americas is recalling 3,287 model year 2017-2018 Aprilia RSV4 1000 RF, and model year 2017-2020 Aprilia RSV4 1000 RR and Aprilia Tuono 1100 RF & RR motorcycles.

The front brake pads may corrode, potentially causing the front brake pad friction material to detach from the backing plate.

If the front brake pad friction material detaches from the backing plate, the motorcycle may experience increased stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Piaggio will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front brake pads free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin May 22, 2020.

Owners may contact Piaggio customer service at (212) 380-4433. Piaggio's number for this recall is PA2ZZQ2001.
