Aprilia Recall A Number Of Models Over Brake Issue

Brake master cylinder issue sees Aprilia models recalled

Around 580 Aprilia Dorsoduro 750/1200, Caponord and Tuono V4 1000/1100 motorcycles have been recalled because of a brake issue.

Bikes built as far back as 2012 could be affected by the issue the notice says is caused by a defective dust gaiter and push-rod assembly in the brake master cylinder.

The issue could cause the motorcycle to require longer than normal stopping distances, resulting in a crash and possibly cause an injury to the rider or other road users.

Owners of affected motorcycles will be sent a letter containing instructions on how to make a minor adjustment to the brake lever setting.

Owners should then contact their nearest Aprilia Dealer to arrange for inspection and replacement of components.

Until the motorcycle is repaired by an Aprilia dealer, riders should maintain a longer than normal braking distance when riding.

PS Importers are in the process of taking over the Aprilia brand in Australia, but the recall notice has been issued by the outgoing Aprilia distributor, John Sample Automotive Pty Ltd.

A list of VIN numbers for bikes involved in the recall can be found on the ACCC Recall website.
