Motorcycle Recall - Ducati Recall

By Walter F. Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  16V891000
Component:  Structure
Manufacturer:  Ducati North America
Recall Date: 12/12/2016
Potential Number of Units Affected: 5,502
Defect Summary:
Ducati North America (Ducati) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Ducati Scrambler motorcycles manufactured February 17, 2015, to November 11, 2016. The affected vehicles have a side stand pivot nut that can detach, potentially causing the side stand position sensor to no longer function properly.
Consequence Summary:
If the side stand position sensor does not function properly, the engine may stall, or the motorcycle may be ridden while the stand is still down. Either scenario increases the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Ducati will notify owners, and dealers will replace the side stand pivot bolt, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 23, 2017. Owners may contact Ducati customer service at 1-800-231-6696. Ducati's number for this recall is SRV-RCL-16-004
