Aprilia recalls 2010 RSV4

Aprilia RSV4 Recall Summary

Piaggio is recalling certain model year 2010 Aprilia RSV4 Factory and RSV4 R motorcycles manufactured between July 2, 2009, and October 30, 2009. In manufacturing the connecting rods, a process was used to straighten the rod in order to meet specifications.

This process introduced stresses into the rods, which greatly affected strength and reliability.

Consequence

Connecting rods in the affected vehicles could fail and cause engine failure that could lead to a loss of vehicle control, resulting in a crash, personal injury, or death.

Recall Remedy

Piaggio will notify owners and replace the engines free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about February 28, 2010. Owners may contact Piaggio at 1-212-380-4431.

Recall Notes

Owners may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.
