Aprilia Recall

Piaggio USA is recalling 2010 Aprilia RSV4 Factory and RSV4 R models manufactured between July 2, 2009, and Oct. 30, 2009. The potential number of units affected is 335.

According to NHTSA, a manufacturing process used to straighten the rods to meet specifications introduced stresses that greatly affected strength and reliability. The rods could fail, the government says.

Piaggio will notify owners and replace the engines for free. The recall is expected to begin on or about Feb. 28. Owners can contact Piaggio at 212-380-4431. The NHTSA campaign ID number is 10V029000.
