Ducati Panigale V4 Recall

Ducati North America has issued a recall for select 2018 Ducati Panigale V4, Panigale V4 S, and Panigale V4 Speciale motorcycles.

One recall relates to a problem where fuel may spray out of the gas tank when the tank cap is opened. The second recall was implemented because fuel may leak from the gas tank’s internal breathing system valve plug.
