Recall: 2010 MV Agusta F4 2010 MV Agusta F4 recall 635x508

MV Agusta is recalling 211 of its 2010 MV Agusta F4 superbikes again, this time for a faulty subframe design. According to the statement issued by the NHTSA, the MV Agusta F4’s rear subframe could crack or break because of the upper fixture points not being “robust” enough. This problem creates a safety issue for a rider and passenger, who could find their stability on the motorcycle compromised under such a situation.

To rectify the problem, MV Agusta is having dealers install a reinforcement kit for the rear subframe, which will be installed by MV dealers free of charge. This recall is expected to begin in April 2011. Concerned owners can contact MV Agusta at 1-215-830-3300, and as always concerned owners can contact the NHTSA for more information at 1-888-327-4236 or at safecar.gov.

    PSA to the NHSTA: “rear subframe” does not equal “swingarm”

  2. Oops, I’ll have to own that mistake Josh. Subframe, subframe, subframe! I apparently had swingarms on the brain.

    Simple solution for MV, recall the bikes, remove the passenger pegs and say they’ve all been upgraded to monopostos free of charge!

    Wow kind of surprising this kind of recall by todays standards, with all the engineering software they have access too…
