2010 sub frame recall

This just posted by NHTSA.

http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/recalls...e&refurl=email

What is interesting is the number of units...which would indicate there are just over 200 MV 2010 F4s in the USA.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Interesting on both counts.

Not heard anything yet over here...doesn't mean there isn't a problem though. Remember the Maclaren push chair stuff, huge recall in the US...over here, "...what problem, there is no problem"

Maybe its coz you lot are a bit more litigious.

I just called Pro Italia. They said they don't know much about it yet or have the parts to fix it. This is just great!. Im telling you I'm starting to miss my old 2010 Ducati 1198 (which was stolen unfortunately) more and more.. My 2010 MV Agusta F4 is currently leaking oil, I'm waiting for a new headlight unit for replacement due to condensation, new heat insulation shields needs to be completely replaced due to original burning off and is detaching. When is that 2012 Ducati sport bike coming out again? lol.

Wow, cracking subframe. That is definitely a new one for the MV. I think I'll stick with my 312 for another year or two and let everything sort itself out.

Should have used the Kawasaki test rider and this never would have happened.

Since the government just announced this I am sure that MVUSA has plans and parts supply in order and official notices will be out shortly to owners. Probably a very unlikely failure and caused by carrying a passenger or heavy load on rough roads at speed.
Personally, I wouldn't get too up tight about it unless you normally have a fat chick on the pillion and like to do jumps.
But you should still have it done as soon as you can....cause if you don't, and it breaks after you got notified, it's all on you if anything bad happens.

Is there any manufacturer that never has a recall? I seem to recall Ducati having quite a few, not to mention Honda and Kawasaki who are infamous for letting the public test their bikes. This one sounds simple.

Mine came with the recall notice and repair instructions/parts. It was installed by the dealer before delivery.
I believe it was a subframe reinforcing bracket and a few screws.
