Aprilia Motorcycles Recalled in Australia for Brake Issue


ALTONA, Australia – The Australian Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications has ordered the recall of certain Aprilia RSV4 & Tuono 1100 Motorcycles due to potential brake issues.

Separation of the front brake pad friction material from its backing plate is the crux of the recall, one which has plagued the Piaggio brands in several other countries (including the United States).

The recall, PRA No. – 2020/18378 / Campaign Number – PSR14, identifies 451 motorcycles from the model years 2017-2020.

The Australian agency wrote, “Reduced brake performance [caused by the brake-pad separation]may result in a dangerous fall or collision, causing serious injury or death to the rider or other road users.”

Aprilia dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace brake pads on affected motorcycles.
