Protocol No.: 0000478 of 15/07/2013

Subject: Aprilia Dorsoduro 1200 Frame no.: Brake hose guard installation.

Dear Customer,

the care and quality control of components are an important part of ensuring the reliability of our products. During the periodic verification of our vehicles in order to ensure maintenance of the highest quality levels, we found that the certain components of the braking system may not fully correspond to Piaggio Group quality standards, generating possible problems to the chassis in the event of wear of the same. Installation of the guard in question is therefore necessary to ensure maximum effectiveness of the braking system.
In order to completely rule out any potential risk and considering it essential to always ensure the highest level of safety for all our Customers, we invite you to take an appointment soon with your Dealer to perform the corrective action. Pending this intervention, it is important that the vehicle is not used at speeds exceeding 50 km/h (31 mph).

The intervention is completely free of charge and consists of installation of the hose guard of the braking system of your motorcycle. Our authorised service network is already able to carry out the technical update planned for your vehicle (see the serial number mentioned above).
We therefore invite you to contact your dealer or an authorised workshop with the necessary instructions and skills to perform the intervention rapidly and in any case with minimal inconvenience.

If the vehicle is no longer in your possession, please kindly provide us with the name and address of the owner by contacting Aprilia Customer Service 800 155 655 or filling in the form attached to this letter and sending it by fax to +39 0587272849.

Thanks in advance for your co-operation. Best regards,

Yup, got mine this morning, and since they are advising a low speed limit it effectively puts he bike off he road, if for no other reason that if you crash your insurance company will probably disown you!
Ringing dealer tomorrow and will report back.
