After big names like Honda, Indian, Triumph, BMW Motorrad recalled their various motorcycles, now it’s the turn of Italian MV Agusta to issue a recall for the 2017 Brutale 800 Dragster RR.
In the 2017 season, many manufacturers have come out and recalled different models produced over different periods of time. The latest manufacturer to send out recall notices is Italian high-end bike maker MV Agusta. The bike in question is the 2017 Brutale 800 Dragster RR. According to the recall documents, the rear wheel rims and their nipples are defective on certain units., which might cause the spokes to loosen.
If the spokes do loosen, they will cause the rear wheel to wobble at high speeds, affecting the dynamics of the Dragster. Only 45 motorcycles have this defect in the US, according to MV Agusta. The recall is going to be global at a later stage.
MV Agusta will notify owners of affected units, and dealers will replace the defective parts free of charge. The recall came into effect 13 December onwards. The total number of motorcycles affected by the rear wheel issue is 2,813.
