2012 Ducati Motorcycle Recall
Ducati has recalled 283 motorcycles (model year 2012) due to rear-brake pad issues.
Ducati says the following 2012 models are included in the recall:
- 848 EVO
- Hypermotard 796
- Monster 1100 EVO
- Monster 796
- Multistrada 1200 ABS
- Streetfigther 848
Ducati says on the affected motorcycles, the friction material may detach from the backing plate of the rear-brake pads. If the material detaches, there would be a sudden loss of rear brake efficiency, which increases the risk of a crash.
Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the rear brake pads as necessary, free of charge. Ducati has not yet reported a notification schedule, but owners may call the Italian motorcycle company at 1-800-231-6696, or visit ducati.com. The recall number is RCL-12-003.
