After the NHTSA announcement of a recall for Brembo PR16 brake master cylinders in the US, both official distributors for Triumph and Ducati in Malaysia have confirmed that there is currently no recall notice for Malaysia. However, Ducati Malaysia is checking further with the home office in Italy for confirmation if any Ducati motorcycles in Malaysia are affected.

As for Triumph, the brake master cylinder used in the 765 series of naked sports bikes is the PR14 model, and thus does not fall under the recall notice. The recall for Brembo PR16 brake master cylinders is currently applicable for motorcycles in the US, and remedial work is expected to begin on February 15.

The recall is for replacement of the plastic master cylinder with an aluminium version, as the plastic cylinder may break due to hard use such as racing, or if the ABS is applied too frequently. We are currently awaiting a response from other motorcycle distributors in Malaysia, and will update when further news is received.
