MV Agusta is recalling 2010 F4 motorcycles due to issues with the rear subframe. MV Agusta says the upper fixture points of the subframe may not be sufficiently robust, which could result in a crack during use. The Italian motorcycle company says 211 units are affected.
If the F4’s frame cracks, the stability of a rider and passenger could be compromised therefore causing the risk of a crash.
A reinforcement support kit will be installed by MV Agusta dealers free of charge; the safety recall is expected to begin this month (April).
Owners may contact MV Agusta at 1-215-830-3300. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit safercar. com.
This is the second recall of 2010 F4’s in the past year. Last June, MVA recalled some F4s due to air filter frame malfunctions.
For this recall, the air filter frame may have slipped out of position and allowed intake air to bypass the filter. This presented the possibility of debris entering the throttle body assembly and interfering with throttle operation, increasing the risk of a malfunction or crash.
