Aprilia Tuono V4 & Caponord Recall

Piaggio—owner of Aprilia—is recalling 1,628 of its Tuono and Caponord motorcycles due to front-brake issues.

Piaggio says certain model 2014-2015 Aprilia Tuono V4 1000, 2016 Tuono V4 1100, 2015 Caponord 1200 ABS/ADD, and 2016 Caponord Rally motorcycles manufactured from June 18, 2013, to June 13, 2016, are affected in the recall.

Piaggio says on the effected motorcycles, the front brake master cylinder may allow air into the hydraulic circuit, causing a longer than expected braking distance. Piaggio says if an abnormal distance is required to stop the motorcycle, there is an increased risk of a crash.

Aprilia will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front brake master cylinder pushrod and boot assembly, free of charge. The recall began October 04, 2016. Owners may contact Aprilia customer service at 1-866-705-1727.

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.
