MV Agusta USA is recalling certain 2017 MV Agusta Brutale 800 Dragster RR motorcycles, for an issue with their rear wheel assembly. According to the recall documents, the issue stems from defective rear wheel rims and their nipples, which may allow the spokes on the wheel to loosen.
If the rear wheel spokes loosen, it may cause the rear wheel to wobble while at speed, and thus potentially affect the motorcycle’s handling. Only 45 motorcycles are affected by this recall in the United States, but this recall will be initiated worldwide as well.
As such, MV Agusta will notify affected owners, and MV Agusta dealers will replace the rear wheel, free of charge. This recall is expected to begin December 13, 2017.
Concerned owners may contact MV Agusta customer service at 1-215-781-1770, and reference MV Agusta’s recall number for this recall: 2813. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov
