Ducati Recalls 283 Motorcycles (2012)

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.

Customers may also contact the National Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236, or visit safercar.gov.
