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.
