Ducati Motorcycle Recall

Ducati has recalled 2011-2012 Monster 1100 EVO motorcycles due to rear-wheel defects; 892 models are affected.

The Italian manufacturer says the recalled Monster 1100EVO naked bikes were manufactured from Jan. 17, 2011, through Jan. 24, 2012, and have the code DU6-RR marked on the rear wheel.

Over time, the spokes on the rear wheel may develop cracks, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear-wheel free of charge. Owners may contact Ducati at 1-800-231-6696, or visit Ducati.com, and reference recall-number RCL-12-002.

Customers may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or visit safercar.org.
