The front ABS brake hose may rub against the engine's secondary air system connection, possibly resulting in a brake fluid leak.

Piaggio will notify owners, and dealers will secure the front ABS brake hose to prevent it from rubbing. Any hose that has already been damaged, will be replaced. The repairs will be made free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2017. Owners may contact Piaggio customer service at 1-212-380-4433.
