It’s been over a month since the master cylinder issue in certain calipers of Brembo came into the highlight. Ever since various motorcycle manufacturers have recalled their affected models to get the necessary parts replaced. Brembo also released a press statement last month which listed the names of the manufacturers who were hit by this fiasco. However, it didn’t mention Husqvarna but the firm has issued a recall notice of its track-only FS450 supermoto.
Apparently, the type of Brembo master cylinder which was found to be suffering from the defect is used in the Husqvarna FS450 supermoto. Husqvarna released a notice stating the recall of its 2016, 2017 and 2018 models of FS450 supermoto. As of now, the recall is declared for the European market, but it is expected that it would hit the USA too.
We don’t have any more information about this recall by Husqvarna. But we will be updating this soon with data about the number of units affected and when is the recall process expected to commence. Stay tuned.
