By Walter F. Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  16V691000
Component:  Service Brakes, Hydraulic
Manufacturer:  Piaggio Group Americas. Inc.
Recall Date: 09/26/2016
Potential Number of Units Affected: 1,628
Defect Summary:
Piaggio Group Americas, Inc. (Piaggio) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Aprilia Tuono V4 1000, 2016 Tuono V4 1100, 2015 Caponord 1200 ABS/ADD, and 2016 Caponord Rally motorcycles manufactured June 18, 2013, to June 13, 2016. The affected motorcycles have a front brake master cylinder that may allow air into the hydraulic circuit, causing a longer than expected braking distance.

If an abnormal distance is required to stop the motorcycle, there is an increased risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Aprilia will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front brake master cylinder pushrod and boot assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in October 2016. Owners may contact Aprilia customer service at 1-866-705-1727.
