Piaggio Group Americas is recalling 1,628 model year 2014-2015 Aprilia Tuono V4 1000; 2016 Tuono V4 1100; 2015 Caponord 1200 ABS/ADD; and 2016 Caponord Rally motorcycles manufactured June 18, 2013, to June 13, 2016.
The motorcycles have a front brake master cylinder that may allow air into the hydraulic circuit, causing a longer than expected braking distance.
If an abnormal distance is required to stop the motorcycle, there is an increased risk of a crash.
What to do
Aprilia will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front brake master cylinder pushrod and boot assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in October 2016.
Owners may contact Aprilia customer service at 1-866-705-1727.
