Ducati Diavel Recall

Ducati has recalled 27 Diavel motorcycles due to side-stand issues; the affected motorcycles were manufactured from May 25, 2012, through June 28, 2012.

Ducati says the side stand could bend or break in the pivot area, allowing the motorcycle to fall over, increasing the risk of personal injury to the operator or others near the motorcycle. Even without falling, a bent side stand may interfere with the proper operation of the side stand safety switch, preventing the bike from starting or causing the bike to stall without warning.

Ducati will notify owners, and authorized dealers will replace the side stand, free of charge. Ducati has not provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Ducati at 1-800-231-6696 or through their website at ducati.com.

Ducati’s recall number is RCL-12-005. Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); or visit safercar.gov.
