    This may also interest some of you that don't read the RSV4 forum.

    NHTSA Campaign Number: 17V811000
    Component(s): Brake System
    Potential Number of Units Affected: 1,856
    Manufacturer: Piaggio Group Americas. Inc.

    THE RECALL: Piaggio Group Americas. Inc. (Piaggio) is recalling certain 2016-2017 Aprilia RSV4 1000 motorcycles (including RR, Factory Superpole, and RF Superpole), and 2017 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 motorcycles (including RR and Factory Superpole). These motorcycles are equipped with Brembo front brake master cylinders that may fail. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 122, "Motorcycle Brake Systems."
    WHAT COULD HAPPEN: If the front brake master cylinder fails, the loss of front braking ability can increase the risk of a crash.
    THE FIX: Aprilia will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front brake master cylinder piston, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 15, 2018. Owners may contact Aprilia customer service at 1-212-380-4433.
    MORE RECALL INFORMATION: 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 safercar.gov.

    closing this thread, use the RSV4 one for all future updates. Cleaned this one up.

    http://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/s...-That-May-Fail

    VINS have not been loaded in to the system, and a dealer procedure and part # are forthcoming. Looking like ALL 2017 Tuonos are effected by this Brembo recall.

    You can check your VINs after Jan 15th

    Owner Notification: Each owner of a vehicle included in this recall will be notified by first class mail. In this letter Aprilia USA will describe the details of the concern, the cause, and the correction addressed by this recall. In addition, Aprilia USA asks that each owner contact their respective Aprilia dealer to arrange for an appointment to have the parts and labor required of this recall completed. Please make every effort to accommodate your recall customers within your existing service schedule. Please note that until the internal float element has been replaced, the vehicle must be ridden judiciously, taking into account the possible loss in braking capacity, moderating speed and maintaining longer safety distances. Customers must not use the vehicle on the track until the replacement has been completed
