Motorcycle Recall - Ducati

NHTSA Campaign ID:  10V356000
Component:  Vehicle Speed Control: Cables
Manufacturer:  Ducati North America
Recall Date: 07/28/2010
Potential Number of Units Affected: 396
Defect Summary:
Ducati is recalling certain model year 2010 Multistrada 1200 motorcycles. The throttle cables may come into contact with the upper edge of the radiator during normal operation of the motorcycle. This situation could cause the throttle cables to become chafed by the radiator resulting in damage to the motorcycle and a potential hazard to the rider.
Consequence Summary:
Damage to the cables could adversely affect the motorcycle's throttle operation and thereby reduce the driver's ability to control the speed of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Dealer will secure the throttle cables to the frame above the radiator to prevent contact. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during August 2010. Owners may contact Ducati at 800-231-6696.
