Ducati has recalled 1,433 of its 2016-2017 XDiavel models, the Bologna-based manufacturer’s cruiser motorcycle. Ducati says certain XDiavels that were manufactured from July 7, 2015, through June 22, 2016, may have loosening side-stand issues. Ducati reports a fastening screw for the side stand may not be sufficiently tightened, causing the stand to fail and the bike fall.

This loosening can also cause the side-stand sensor screw to damage the side-stand sensor switch, causing the engine to stall.

Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will replace the side stand pivot and side stand plate fastening screw, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 7, 2016. Owners may contact Ducati customer service at 1-800-231-6696. Ducati’s number for this recall is RCL-16-003(B).

This is the second recall of XDiavel motorcycles; earlier this month, Ducati recalled the same amount of 2016-2017 XDiavel motorcycles due to a possible loosened rear final-drive bolt.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to SaferCar.gov.
