Aprilia Shiver 750 and Aprilia Caponord Recalls

Piaggio Group Americas, Inc. – the owner of Aprilia – has recalled 337 of its 2014-2015 Aprilia Shiver 750 and 2015 Aprilia Caponord 1200 motorcycles due to possible rear-wheel lock-up issues.

Piaggio says the Shiver 750s, manufactured from Feb. 10, 2014, through Oct. 28, 2014, and Caponord 1200s, manufactured from Nov. 14, 2013, to Oct. 16, 2014, may have improper machining on the output gear shaft face.

Due to this, the front sprocket may loosen, possibly causing the rear wheel to lock up, increasing the risk of a crash.

Piaggio will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the output shaft, replacing any that are found to be defective, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in January 2015. Owners may contact Piaggio customer service at 1-212-380-4433.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
