MV German re-call of Brembo F4 R superlights

As read in german forum. MV seems to call back bikes for replacing the rear brembo superlight wheel as precaution. Not mentioned is what problem they are after and if it concerns Brutales unknown too.

=========
Update see below also
=========
I got a follow up mail.
It is not a complete re-call!!
It seems to be about 30 bikes which profit from production upgrading, the brutale R is not involved. Keep you updated!!

does this apply to the forged brembo light wheel on the 910R?

Yes, that rim is named the 'superlight' in MV speak. We'll see what's going on soon I suspect.

It is not a complete re-call!! A re-call would be needed if suspected danger is involved.

Read in between the lines, It's a nice way of saying these 30 bikes have faulty wheels, maybe it's just the paint? but knowing MV I tend to think it would be more of a safety issue, when you actually feel the spoke width it's scary.....................

In germany they say there is no danger involved, so maybe paint or what else?
I Spoke to the Benelux importer and he has to recall to check as well, he didn't want to tell me why and how many, but I have a friend that bought them seperate and he has been asked to send the wheel in for a checkup.
