Moto Guzzi V85 TT scores two faults

Moto Guzzi V85 TT arrive two faults

Moto Guzzi Australia has recalled the V85 TT adventure model over two faults in the company’s first recall in more than 26 months.

The official notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says the two faults concern the shaft drive seal and the footpegs.

It says the “rear drive oil seal may wear over time due to dust or other contamination” which is not ideal for an adventure bike.

“If the rear drive oil seal is damaged or worn, oil may leak onto the rear tyre and potentially cause loss of traction and/or control, increasing the risk of an accident or injury to the rider and other road users,” the notice says.Moto Guzzi V85 TT arrives colours two faults

In the other matter, the footpeg retaining pins may fall off along with the pegs.

“If the foot rest loosens or detaches, the rider may lose control of the motorcycle, increasing the risk of an accident or injury to the rider and other road users,” the notice says.

Owners are asked to contact their nearest authorised Moto Guzzi dealer to book in for an additional dust seal and an improved pin retainer.

The dealer will also perform a free seven-point function and diagnostic check.
