Aprilia and Moto Guzzi have recalled 197 bikes over an issue with a dragging front brake.
The issue affects the following bikes made between 2015 and 2019 (Vehicle Identification Numbers of bikes are included at the end of this article):
California 1400 Touring
California 1400 Touring SE
The official notice filed wth the Australian Competition and Consumers Commission says the front brake master cylinders “may cause the front brakes to drag or bind, affecting handling and brake performance”.
“Reduced brake performance and motorcycle handling increases the risk of accident or injury to the rider(s) and other road users,” the notice says.
Owners of bikes with the dragging brake issue should contact their authorised Aprilia or Moto Guzzi dealers to book their vehicle for inspection and, if necessary, replacement of the front brake master cylinder, free of charge.
