2017-2019 Ducati SuperSport & Monster Recall | Shift Lever Issues

2017-2019 Ducati SuperSport & Monster Recall

Ducati has recalled 2,705 of its 2017-2019 Monster 1200, Monster 821, SuperSport and SuperSport S motorcycles.

The recall was necessary because the shift lever may have been incorrectly assembled, possibly resulting in the shift knob detaching from the lever. If this occurs, a rider can miss a shift, which can possibly lead to a crash.
